Just been to the market,sampled some lovely food....only thing that put me off was seeing a couple of extremely large rats, but then again with so much food and waste around what do you expect, there's always McDonald's across the road :)

Vibrant colours and smells in this lively market. Plenty of fresh (live) Seafood and fresh produce on offer as well as amazing spices and chilli & curry pastes. Walking around speaking with vendors was lovely. Great place to explore and get a great feed.
