Set next the main mall, the majority of the vendors are down below. It is good safe friendly marketplace - as usual with such places there is some repetition but that is to the buyers advantage to negotiate a good price

This place is right outside and next to one of the mall entrances. At least 100 vendors. So much stuff to choose from and many take cc. The best thing is there are great treasures to be found but you have to look for them....More

Good range of merchandise where you’ll be able to find African jewellery, decorations, cloths etc. Vendors are friendly and will try to convince you to buy things, but then why wouldn’t they. Some could start with ‘high’ prices but quickly drop it down so there...More
