Secure parking below makes the market very accessible. The prices are fair and the items are traditional touristy souvenirs. Avoid R Moody’s spices. The lady working there is very pushy, has ridiculous prices and gets rather aggressive if you don’t want to buy stuff.

Not a really exceptional visit Good for African trinkets and some spices but not much else. Not safe to walk around outside the markets so have a taxi take you and wait for you to finish and take you home

It was a great experience for me walking through all the markets. Seeing such alot of stuff to buy and don't know what to buy. Doing the henna tattoo was a hit. Great place to shop for gifts.
