Fodor's Review

This bustling market, which celebrated its 100th birthday in 2014, has a bit of a Jekyll-and-Hyde personality, and if you are unlucky enough to encounter pushy vendors, scammers, and pickpockets it won't exactly be an enjoyable experience. Stay alert, though, and you can have a lovely time exploring the 3,000 stalls. The most interesting section is the wet market at the back. Cheap T-shirts and other tourist tat is for sale in the front section, fabric and haberdasheries in the middle, and some great food stalls spring up beside the market at night.
