  • Go there early around 5.30 AM and taste the local food. Peaceful marketplace with locals all around.
  • Best place to get seaweed and many other typical local snacks
  • Interesting market, containing mostly food, spices etc. as opposed to the night market that is more clothes and souvenirs focused.
  • Good to walk and shop in the morning, get a fresh vegetables, fruits and some Meat. Water up and be there before 10 am.
  • Well it's another Asian market and a lot of the same products are sold by multiple vendors. Definitely they could do a better job on the layout.
