I love this market so so much I have no better words to express it other than "love". So much interesting stalls around, very clean and easy to navigate. The planning of the market were really great, I can find my way very easily because there are sign boards above the stalls to indicate which section am I at. My family and I enjoyed our entire afternoon shopping in the market. Definitely recommend everyone and anyone to go there! Just remember to get a map from the information counter or else you are going to miss out the entire section at the back (if you are like me who aren't good at exploring).
One of the biggest markets in the world. It is highly recommended to go there with someone local at the first time. You may get lost very easily. As far I'm aware market is open only over the weekend. If you are looking for any souvenirs just before you back from holiday this is perfect place! There is absolutely everything you can imagine! From food, home equipment, garden furniture, knifes clothes to live animals. Best book all day for it. Good luck.
