I seldom give poor reviews, I don't take it lightly and I am not a complainer, but here goes. We like shopping, supporting the local economy and having a reminder of our visit to a place. So we stopped by the Chameleon Village. We knew...More

Well now. “Interesting” is the word that springs to mind. It is like the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, but not as Grand. You are however also harassed by stall owners trying to sell you african masks, love letters and all other types of paraphernalia. Not...More

Lots of market stalls selling the same thing. You can't walk two steps without being hassled. Whilst I understand they want to make a living, people are more likely to stop and look if are left alone a bit.

This place is full of beautiful handcrafted items, however the people working there are desperate for a sale. They will not let you go and literally beg you to buy something. It was extremely uncomfortable to walk through and we had to cut our visit...More

We go there just for a stroll around. A lot to see and very interesting. Lots of eating places. Their is the loveliest little shop inside which seems to be selling arts and crafts made by the locals. I love that shop.

Almost everything under one roof if you are looking for curios. The vendors can be a bit pushy, but are very willing to bargain with you. You are assured of good prices as a result of the competition around. The curios come from all over...More
