  • Heard it is dangerous and to be careful, so I was quick with my moves in and out. It's a good depiction of hustle and bustle day to day living hard work and barter. You walk right into the market from the city and can interact or see lots of locals working and talking. A good pls e if you want to buy cheap goods too but I we to to observe life as a local market vendor and shopper.
  • Fantastic place to shop, market has pretty much anything you need. However it's been in need of a renovation for some time now, it's not in very good shape. Also, there is alot of thieves in here and in the surrounding areas, so be careful. I followed a friend once to buy a phone and someone followed us and robbed us the phone. Drugs are also sold here, and black market/stolen items are also sold in certain areas. Hand truck operators are very rude and would run you over if you don't pay attention and give them right of passage. Place is over crowded in the afternoon.
