It's a market. Slightly interesting with tribal costumes, good, and souvenirs. Stroll for 10-15 minutes after observing the activities in the border but that's about it.

We live in Thailand, so we saw a thai market before. Not really special. Just for local people to buy food etc. But it was fine to walk through. It took only 20 min.
