Do not hesitate to ask for explanations, the merchants respond willingly as for the taking of photos, welcome by asking. On the ground floor, domestic market. Upstairs, tourist products, do not hesitate to haggle nicely and compare between the shops. In the second, cheap men's and women's clothes.
I’m starting to love this place more and more. Many claim it has a soul, some that it is the heart of the capital. If you start looking at it from a different perspective you soon realise the value of such an amazing and vibrant core area of one of the best cities in the world.
A place of sights and sounds that would impact all your senses. The colours of all the vegetables and fruits you find here an incredible. The fact that everything is so fresh also makes it a great place to shop for all your fruits and vegetable needs. It’s actually really beautiful place to click some pictures of a market setting. A good place to pick up magnets and other souvenirs from and can bargain quite a bit. Come in with a motive to bargain down and you can land some pretty great prices in comparison the larger stores on the waterfront don’t usually allow to much bargaining. The time inside here won’t take you more than an hour as the stalls are quiet repetitive in terms of both souvenirs as well as the fruits and veggies.
