The area closest to where you get off the ferry is full of designer shops. After a good look round we got a taxi up to the Ladies Market. The area around the market is... More

90% of shops and business were closed when we visited due to Chinese New Year. Shops that were opened not that interesting. However things may be different after CNY.

I wandered around this neighborhood within a neighborhood being introduced to many of the sights, sound and smell I would expect from the Land of Smiles. I headed to South Wall Road for the biggest concentration of groceries, street... More

It is useful to have some idea of what you may find in various areas but not necessary. There is an area of pet sales, an area of teenager shops, an area with... More
