Nice market where it should be possible to buy most things. Lots of household pots and pans in addition to usual tourist crap. The food and meat market is a bit of an eye opener. more »
We had really nice local food here, the fish cake made with the leafs was surprising me! The noodles without soup one was delicious too! All good, all unforgettable.
Quite a good market. Worth the walk over the river. There are some genuine deals to be had. Bought some good esspresso cups. But do be prepared to barter and then walk to get a fair price. You can get a good exchange rate at most of the gold stalls. Just check it first. They will give u a rate and then when u say yes they will take their commission. I do not have a problem paying commission I just like to know what it is before I say yes.
