A terrible place to go shopping. Sellers are rude and intrusive. Quality of goods low. Prices may seem low, but as it is mostly cheap know-off's it's of no value. I would recommend going to the Central Market instead where you can find some proper...More

Nothing special here. Fake bags, watches, clothes and a lot of food stalls and even more people. Like chinatown elsewhere but not as good. If you are in the are then go for an experience, otherwise skip it.
