night markets

Firstly thanks to all who have contributed to this treasure trove of valuable advice.

Now, we (hubby, 22 yo daughter and I) are going to KBR in August. I was planning on doing a trip to the night markets but have just read a post by someone who was 6 foot 3 inches and found it very uncomfortable. My husband is 6 foot 9 inches!! is it just individual stalls with low canopies or is the entire market under a low tarpaulin type roof, like would he be able to walk around comfortably down aisles while daughter and I shop?

Thanks in advance

I found these 2 videos of the markets on youtube when researching them yesterday. I haven't been personally, but am going in May so can't comment from experience.

Hope this helps with a bit of an idea.

Its worth the visit as said the items for sale are a lot cheaper. I am 6 foot and don't have issues but there are a couple of the isles that have low tarps down the center, you can walk closer to the stalls for more height. A friend of ours is 6' 11" and he has to duck in those isles so now he just avoids those ones and goes to the higher ones. The tarps are there only to stop the rain if it comes.
