This place was not too crowded on a weekday. They have just about any souvenir or knick-knack that you can imagine. Depending on the item, it might be cheaper here because the market is so large so prices are more competitive. They have shooting balloon,...More

We went to the nigh market with high hopes of delicious food (we did find a few interesting items) and bargains. What we found were an abundance of crappy carnival games and cheep knickknacks. Don't waste your time.
