This market display a lot of things such as handmade souvenirs, dresses, paints, traditional food, fruits. This is a crowded place so let protect your luggage.

Crowded and way to many shops. I’m sure you can find a deal, but if you get easily claustrophobia don’t go.

My husband and I visited here, and we were in and out in ten minutes. This definitely isn't a place for tourists, and the locals do not look impressed that tourists venture in. I was pushed around, and shouted at.

This is mainly a wholesale market mainly but sellers will sell individual items if you want them. It's packed with all types of children's and adult's clothes, shoes, fabric, suitcases and some household goods. It's huge. I didn't see the food section so can't comment...More

Good, huge markets with everything you can think of. Be aware that it’s incredibly busy, squashed in, four levels and minimal English is spoken. Awesome place to grab a bargain and can barter with most of the stall holders
