    A lot of things to see there. There is a section that is only for hand made products. There is a husband and wife team that paint and you should see their paintings incredible.

    Super touristy and quite a cramped market. Although the food wasn’t bad in flavour I ended up getting horrible food poisoning from eating chicken skewers at one of the booths. If you’re planning on going, maybe just avoid any pre-cooked meat. Make sure what you get is cooked on the spot

    Always crowded but lots of food and stuff to buy. This street is quite long with souvenir shops food stalls along the way and you might get broked :P Beware of your pockets/bags because there are so many people here. If you have rental/private cars, it is pretty hard to find parking lots.
