As a local who have been here a couple of times, this place is definitely not worth your time. Everything sold there is cheap but are repetitive such that every other store sells the exact same merchandise, that are not even worth your money. Furthermore there are lots and lots of pickpockets here, solely there to target innocent tourists. If... More

Very limited street food, which was advertised and recommended to us, apart from a few people roasting chestnuts at night. All the market stalls are selling the same stuff which even after haggling down (which I do frequently at markets... More

The market is great. Full of stuff you ll find the same stuff on almost all shops with similar prices. The rates are asked at very high just to be brought down after a bargain.

Visited several times over the week. Extra stalls are daily put up approx 5pm in the evenings in one street which makes for a very crowded area. I did think it would be larger but overall it was enjoyable.

Avoid going to this place for window shopping etc. They will force you to buy when you start to ask them about the item. Please be aware of pickpockets and there are a lot of beggars around.
