Was walking the whole way along the bridge to the other side. You will meet many locals. Don't be surprised if they are taking pictures of you! A very good spot for photography and to relax a bit. On the main side of the bridge...More

I had a lot of time to explore this place when I waited a sunset. 2-3 hours is enough to look around, walk on the bridge and find a good place to take a pictures of sunset (I choose on field on left side)

This bridge is famous and once you are on it can understand why it is a must for tourists. The surrounding market and shops are also interesting, and you easily spend quite some time just looking around.
