If you want to seek any old things or traditional things, then come visit here.. But sometimes they put expensive price on the things, so you need to negotiate it as well..start from half price..

Must try for visitors who like antiquity and also a good weekend trip down here is worth doing once in a while. You may find yourself laughing and smiling looking at the toys and things you grew up with. Also learn a thing or two regarding the antiquities. But remember to bargain and haggling is a must.

The place is old, falling apart. The goods are like from age ago, but not nice at all. Very disappointed. Travel for 1.5 hours to get there, stay for 10 minutes, get nothing home. Cheap fake stuff...

Not so great place to find antiques as most of the stuff are new productions that are made to look like real antiques. Lots of middlemen to confuse you into buying fake antiques

This seems to continue to go downhill over the years. It's hard to tell what's an actual antique here and what is just something they try to make look old. It's particularly difficult for foreigners - many shop owners will try to herd them into their shop and charge ridiculous prices for things, so bargain very hard with them. Besides... More

I love this street of 'antique' shops. Its a treasure trove full of delightful trinkets, sculptures and ceramics. A good place to practice your bargaining technique! If your prepared to have fun with the vendors you wont feel so hassled.

You must haggle for prices. They all will claim their goods are real old antiques and charge a lot. With a little patience and eye for details you can get interesting pieces of something that may remind you of something sentimental, or just for the fun of it.

As a collector I visited this market as a matter of interest .while one may find it interesing I found it to be much of the same and overpriced to say the least .i don't find reproduced antiques that were made yesterday the least bit interesting .the only thing I can add to this is buyer beware

Really love this place, there is something for anyone looking for a bit of bric a brac. I bought a pair of wayang golek and the seller was very enthusiastic about swappingthe golek heads to match the blue batik outfits I preferred. Remember to bargain quite hard as the sellers are seasoned campaigners. There is also another row of shops... More
