  • Great market. Reminds me of the year 1982. I don't have to look at pictures to remember the good times. I just come here.
  • Went there in October 1993, locals shot down my helicopter. Not the greatest of experiences
  • the Greatest market in the Horn of africa adn the heart of this city, you can find everything you need. food, electrity, clothes kitchen stuff, money exchange e.t.c.
  • Not sure how it is today, but back in 93 I flew in with some friends for an afternoon pick me up. The locals were very unfriendly. They were giving away rifles to all the locals, but would only attempt to give us the bullets. Even though it was already a warm day, the locals started setting up what I assume were BBQ's, but someone should really tell them burning tires is not a healthy way to cook. All in all, not a good experience. There is another review that says the chocolate is great, but the meat tastes like human meat? Ummm, how would they know that?
  • Somali biggest market for all time low cost and will get everything you needed.
