Very touristy, but that’s just me as I prefer to wander more local markets. Lots of fresh fruit and vendors selling wares from souvenirs to clothes. Many restaurants and cafes also located nearby.

Almost perfect for visitors, now that due to COVID-19, the place is not so crowded. Many stalls with a huge variety of (edible) products. Cheese, fish, snacks, drinks, clothes, wallets, household stuff, you name it. Actually visited by many local people, too. Accessible by wheelchair and connected with many different ways of public transport.

Lots to look at but other than a few good stalls a lot of them are a bunch of tourist trinkets and junk. Try going off the main strip on to the shops in the side streets and you'll have more fun.

Not really a cool market. On one hand bit wider choice than other markets, but same time its full of absolute and not too cheap junk. Cool location though. Extra points for all handcraft selling stalls.
