Great selection of goods. Bartering was pretty easy and you didn't get hassled as much which made the experience a lot easier. No problem with transport as every exit had at least 10 tuk tuk drivers wanting you to go with them.

A good fun market with quite a lot to offer for tourists. Do barter but remember that the goods are very cheap anyway so don't be too hard on the local traders!!!

Very local, greasy and very "iffy" food options set amongst bad music. Not our favorite stop. Very few, if any, handicrafts to enjoy.

Central market is an art-deco market to find anything in the city, thought bit more expensive and touristy compared to the sweatier (if you can imagine) and cheaper Orussey market nearby.

What a crazy crazy place!! Definitely worth a visit, but don't set your expectations too high. Also, avoid the toilets(!) It's a little different to most markets, in the layout and feel of the place. It's quite nice that some of it is covered, but...More

It was very hot here and a lot of the clothes were for locals. There were souvenirs but didn't get much else. Good for the hussle bussle. The Russian market was better

Asian markets abound. All vary but have one thing in common....heat! This venue is no exception. A lovely building jammed with vendors however much more spacious than the Russian markets. Certainly the eye is on the tourist dollar so a good old haggle may keep...More
