This is primarily a wholesale market. If you come here, don't be surprised if most of the vendors ignore you, and if you ask for a price they will open with "wholesale". The one side of the market has a restaurant section, and the interior courtyard has a small shrine. It is an interesting place, but for actually buying souvenirs and such, there are better markets to attend.
Be prepared to be rejected when you counter offer. This is where your special negotiations skill comes in! 😂 Other than that, you get local delicacies food, plenty of "original" clothes like under armour and Reebok. Lots of kitchenwares, dry foods, stationeries, anything you can think off. Put your charm away and take your calculator out! 😂 Enjoy it while you can 💪
