  • Found the whole market underwhelming. Most stalls sell pretty much the same. At least the vendors are not pushy, so that is refreshing. The saddest part are the poor animals in tiny cages, it is simpl...  more »
  • Except for the really sad caged dogs and cats, this sunday market is worth it! You might wanna save up on buying your souvenirs because this market is gold. From fruit stands to local herbal medicines...  more »
  • The Sunday market is good for an early morning stroll. Most of the stalls are selling pretty much the same stuff, but you can pick up some nice local knick knacks.

  • The best weekends market around town. So many things you can find here. :D
  • Nice and great. Lots of things to see and buy
  • This market is catered towards locals and is a great place to taste new foods. You can buy pets, plants, fruits, vegetables, and many types of trinkets. The market starts at 6:30 in the morning so come early before the sun gets too hot. Also there are fewer people earlier. Many places serve food along the streets if you want to sit down and take a break from walking around for a while
  • Nice and cheap market selling anything from food to fake shoes. Not made for tall people!
  • Places many things to explore...but have a hard time to find car parking there ..need to park 1.5km away. Very hot weather..
