We were there this AM. Nice & safe place to browse around. Interesting collection of exotic herbs & ingredients. But we didn't buy given the poor food quality assurance standards.

Difficult to describe, market like any other. Since it's medicine market there is quite clean. I was expecting it to be smelly, but it wasn't. If you can't stand the view of dried seahorses or some parts of other animals, don't go.
