I found this more interesting than the Ladies market or temple street. I was smaller than either but had a wider variety of items. However, it is another bargaining area which I dislike immensely so I ended up not getting anything

The ladder street and surrounding area are real lively. Although Ladder Street itself is touristic the surrounding street are really nice. Good place to find some fun, and if you look thoroughly also very nice, souvenirs.

boutique cafés are tucked away in every side street in
the sub district known as “PoHo.” Browse through the
vintage clothing and handmade leather goods stores –
