This is one of the old streets in the Old quarter. This street sells mainly fans and wood carved stamps. Interesting to see.

This is one of many streets in the Old quarter. I found a number of shops selling handicrafts and customised wood stamps. Its a small street and you can cover this on your tour of the old quarter.

This street has changed over the years, from fans now it seems that the latest thing is small stamps carved from wood, you can have anything you like made up, very interesting I recommend it to visit.

An naturally artistic street, fans of all kinds and colors a displayed by the stores here make it a panoramic picture of colors and art of arrangement. We bought 10 hand fans here as souvenirs. Hope our family would like them!
