Was not an enjoyable experience with constant harassment and very dirty area. Wouldn't recommend in the evening, may be slightly different during the day.

Fun place to visit if looking for cheap copy watches, mobile phone gadgets, t shirts & Bluetooth speakers. Catch a Tuk Tuk there for the experience, closes at 5pm.

If you've been to other markets in SE Asia, this won't seem very exciting, lots of jewellery. If you like post modern architecture it would be worth a visit to see the beautiful building but don't go out of your way.

Very crowded rabbit warren that you could easily get lost in. Worth a look but can be a little overwhelming.
