When I'm traveling, I hate when I'm in tourist sites that vendors try to force me into buying something. That's the case of this market. Sometimes I just run away from the place. Here you have a small bonus: the restaurant and terrace view. But...More

The handicrafts are for tourists but also there is a local cultural behind of them. The handicrafts are made by raw materials, such as leather, clay, wood, seashells, gold, silver, etc. The main theme of them is religion and also, the good luck charms such...More
