  • One of the must sees in Georgetown, this busy market will keep you occupied for a while. You'll find a bit of everything here, and plenty of cheap restaurants around the area as well. Be careful in this area by night, other than that it's a very interesting place to visit, to get to know the people and the produce of Guyana more.
