Around the sides are various massage and relax therapy stalls and cubicles mainly staffed by Asians. At the back there is the most wonderful mouth watering aroma emanating from a diverse variety of foods... More

This place was a few blocks from our hotel. It was the only place opened late at night...after 9pm. A good place to spend an hour or two. There are souvenir stalls. The Asian food places were priced based on whatever you can fit a plate or container. The food is open and uncovered so go to the one where... More

We went here twice for food & the adult children liked the market for gifts to take home. We all loved the pancake shop at the front ot the market too. Pity most of the food was Asian though.

The night market is worth a visit. There are many food stalls mainly with Asian food buffets and the price depends on plate size. Next there are many shops selling the typical tourist souvenirs cheap and there are also a number of massage shops to serve tourists after a long day. Overall it feels like a bit a Asian in... More

Plenty of stalls selling many tourist products and food stalls. Ate there twice ,once was poor because the food was cold. Other time was very good. Food was hot tasty and good value. Choose your stall wisely. A lot like the night markets which seem to be so popular in Asia.Enjoy

This was one of those "you must do it before you leave..." evenings and I'm pleased we did. Lots of good value trinkets to bring home (let's face it, no-one in our family can play a didgerdoo so why pay thousands for a real one when a cheap momento will do!). Just be careful when buying Aussie gifts, as many... More

Don't eat here if you're on holidays. The night market is full of crappy and cold meals and not cheap at all. And no alcohol selection.

Our hotel recommended the Night Market and we glad they did. From massages (we did not do that) to food to craft items....we loved the Night Market. If you like craft items, and you want something made in Australia, you need to check out the hand made items. We loved the art work and were only limited by the available... More
