“Affordable stuff at your own risk!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

The place is like a shopping mall with everything you need at a very good price but there are muggers so shop but keep an eye out for pickpockets.

“Worst Street to walk along”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Very crowded street with the hawkers running around.
Cheap/substandard good sold along these streets except for a few places.
In fact the word river road is often synonymous with substandard goods.

“Stay away!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

This street is not only dirty and filthy, it is totally unsafe for tourists to walk in this area. Theft and fraud is rife in this area and if you treasure your belongings you will surely stay away from this area of the CBD
