As you would imagine, this is a total tourist trap, but there are things to buy. Don't expect competitive prices, as the vendors are a few dollars more expensive than in other parts of town.

I am honestly not sure. We have always left our car at the hotel and walked or taken a pedi cab. I do not believe it is free, but there are some lots nearby.
