Pretty rubbish place. Got hassled outside by a "chef from our hotel" - got rid of him then went inside. Good tip in an earlier review about turning your wristband inside out. Didn't get any more "chefs" hassling us after we did that. Harassed from practically every stall holder once inside, stayed 10 minutes then went back to the hotel.

Worth going to see all the narrow passageways and shops but expect hassle from all of them because of lack of tourists

Simply unbearable grief from people wanting you to come into their shops / trading area. They will stand in front of you, obscure your way, and then shout at you when you tell them no. We bought nothing, and simply refused to go near any stall where they'd hassled us
