I am not sure what to say about the Sunday Night Walking Market at the Old City. It is huge but the two times I went in late Jan early Feb 16 is was like Times Square on New Years Eve. So crowded the second time after ten minutes I just gave up and went back to my hotel. There... More

There are parts of this street that they have booths set up in the middle in addition to the sides. It was way to crowded to navigate through these areas.

Go early as other travellers advise. We didn't and we were overwhelmed by crowds of Chinese tour groups pushing and shoving their way through the crowd. We didn't enjoy it at all. The market is huge and there is some great stuff but we have just been to the Night Bazaar and there were fewer people and the same stuff... More

Unless you have an incredible desire to be packed into a human sardine can just for the opportunity to buy the same crap you can get at any other market here I wouldn't recommend this at all.

This would be a great market if you removed 50% of the people that attend it. The sheer volume of people makes it very difficult to see anything or buy goods/food. We went last year and it wasnt as crowded and enjoyed it but this year we gave up 150 meters in and headed elsewhere. Plenty of other markets around... More

We've been to this market many times over the years. This year Wanda let down as the crowds were overwhelming in the streets. You really couldn't see anything over the heads and was very difficult keeping our group together and headed in the right direction. The Chinese your groups overrun the streets and push and shove in mass. Stick to... More

If you love huge masses of people and not being able to move and feeling claustrophobia this is the place for you! At one point we were stuck in a mob of people for about 5 minutes that was completely gridlocked unable to move. I have done it a few times now and its just not worth it, not even... More

We decided to stroll through the market to see the wares. Plenty of selection, plenty of people (including some street performers). I was able to barter for some sunglasses - I'm not very good at bartering and likely paid too much, but they've been a very good set of cheap sunglasses and I don't mind having overpaid for them (around...

The prices are better than elsewhere in town and the variety is fantastic. There is street food at every few steps. It does get very very crowded. I always aim to arrive at 5pm - so I can get through a lot of it before the crowds flock down on the street.

If you like shopping local craft while eating good food and having a foot massage after that tiring market walk, this is a must visit place for you. We reached around 4 when the stalls were still setting up and were there till 10. So if crowd is a concern, make sure to hit the market at around 4/5. It... More
