It is best to do this market early in the morning, to avoid the crowds, rekax, and to avoid potential thieves. The market is amazing, in that the deals that you get are much better than the tourist areas where you get so ripped off....More

Outside are stalls upon stalls of great souvenir shopping. If you're diligent you can actually find some really well crafted, not the same-old-same-old in-every-stall, handbags. Always be sure to bargain: I start at 1/3-1/2 the price the vendor offers, and usually end up paying around...More
