  • Great place to go for souvenirs. They can be a bit pushy but that makes it fun and interesting! You can talk them down in prices and they will work with you.  more »

  • We found good souvenirs here. But there are so many vendors here all trying to get you into their shops. The good thing is that you can talk them down in price. I really liked the store that sold the handcrafted leather goods. There is also a vendor that sells shot glasses with anything you want engraved on them. They have souvenir shops for things for $1 & also $5 T-shirts.
  • Great place to get souvenirs. U have to bargain though. The downside is the heavy duty calling u to come here and see my store, I ha e what u need etc. This dri es me nuts. Today I needed something specific for my mom and could glance in a shop and see if they had some jewelry xje requested Nonetheless, shop owners kept calling me. Finally was shown a small cart where a quiet lady allowed me to look in silence. She had the jewelry for my mom and for 2 others. Finally a slam dunk. Don't let it dissuade you. If u have to, ignore the calla. Take ur time going from shop to shop.
  • It's a good market place to buy souvenirs. Make sure to negotiate almost to the half price what they ask for.... shop keepers are nice and friendly.
  • careful going here they cornered us in their little shops a person had no time to look at their products to shop because they are trying to hard and shoving things at you we suggest the retail stores if they would just let folks walk thru and look and shop the would sell alot more
  • Good sized market place definitely should know how to haggle or bring someone who does also make sure to look around and compare prices to get the best ones. Some people are friendly others not so much.
