  • It's hard to to look around to and enjoy the visit without constantly being hassled by the sellers . It's very uncomfortable there. But they are many beautiful and unique items to see and buy .
  • Always great to visit my friends at the Arts Center. Great pace, but don't forget to bargain!
  • Take your time and look at every shop. Be well rested and eat before going. It's fun to see all the crafts but it can easily be an all day event😀
  • It's a very competitive market with lots of people vying for your attention to buy stuff from them, which can be a bit overwhelming. Other than that, the arts center has a lot of very nice arts and souvenirs
  • Traditional artifacts of all kinds, exquisitely designed selling @competitive prices. # value for money!!!
