  • When traveling to Asia, visiting the markets is probably a kind of tourist entertainment on the one hand, on the other where the local flavor is also so visible as in the Asian market. I do not know how to write to shoot down the price 3-4 times for a quality product and do not really believe in it, if mangoes for example and so sell for a dollar per kg . We bought fruit the price doubled from the offers of hawkers in the city. And when planning the trip, we decided that Cao l'u will try only on the market. Were pleasantly surprised by the neatness of these market cafes. Cao l'u is beyond praise. There is still a clothing market for interest bargained for T-shirts but it turned out from the store price times in 2.5-3 cheaper. Whether or not to decide you in my opinion on the market should be sure to go for fruit.

  • Just a nice market that is quite big overall. Enough to see and eat. Can be very dirty in the afternoon especially after a rainy loot

  • Any and everything you need. I bought drip coffee makers and graters which can make those papaya salads I love so much. The food looked great though I didn’t try any. Dont be shy to bargain!
  • come here if you want to try local food during the day, you will find a lot of fruits and delicious food to eat and cheap.
