Be carful if u enter the central market . Full of pickpockets . The young guys will just surround you and take what you have . Police security is there but still 1 needs to be very careful .

Hard bargain the sellers, because you will get from them, lots of cool artwork and wood carvings and masks, some masks I found there were fakes, friendly for the area, they are just trying hard to sell, don't wear white shoes, or clothes, the dirt is very red.
