We walked from town, was a little hard to find not knowing the entrances, but once inside was in awe. Fron the small boutique shops outside to the marketplace, we spent the entire day here just shopping, meandering and eating. Too tired to walk back...More

Well worth a visit. Don't miss out on the opportunity to cross using the tiny ferries - they are really fun! there is an excellent studio weaving silk and making gorgeous garments. Almost impossible not to buy something. Lots of interesting glass and pottery too.

This is a very busy area of town. But definitely worth visiting. The public market is the best market I've ever been to! Fresh fruit / cakes / jewellery / coffee / gifts ect Also loads of cute shops in the surrounding areas.

By day it is a shopping area with stores, souvenir shops and bars and restaurants. At night it is a very bustling bar scene that also,attracts the homeless. On weekends the police turn it into a pedestrian street and it fills up.
