There are too many better bazaars in Asia to feel the atmosphere of Asian culture. If it is your first east bazaar go. If not don't lose your time.

Local markets are always a favorite with us...and this one has everything...fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, spices, bread, teas, candy, local handicrafts, etc. It's crazy and brimming with life.
