Just another night market selling the same stuff you get anywhere else and the same street food. If you’re new to Asia then worth a trip, if not it’s nothing special.

A good night market with several souvenir stands and shops. Most of the things being sold are common but picking through you can find a few good souvenirs. The bigger attraction is the food. Plenty of barbecue restaurants along the south of the market- just...More

There is nothing special about this street. The shops and street vendors mostly sell the same thing with very little differentiation. We got bored after walking around for 10 mins.

This market was quite large with a big produce section where I bought some rare bananas. I also bought a Gansu horse statue - so I guess it was better than most. Nice to browse if you have time and after curios.

Very large and clean outdoor night market with lots of dining and shopping. Perfect place to go after about 7 pm.

It is a combination of street food vebdors, junk sellers and some food stalls mainly spices, nuts and dried fruits. It has some atmosphere but nothing special.
