We have travelled all around Asia and always make a point to explore the best local markets so we couldn't resist a visit to this one. Unfortunately this one did not meet our expectations. Firstly the smell really is very overpowering. I've actually never been...More

I went here today to see how this local market compared to the much more touristy one downtown. There’s no question that it is where the locals shop, but I’d only advise visiting here if you can stomach flies buzzing all over the food, strong...More
