Went to the Bird Market. A little side alley that if filled with birds for sale…every size and shape…and cages and bird food. Now when we say bird food, we don’t mean bags of grain. We mean bags of live grasshoppers and bags squirming with meal worms. We had never seen anything like this…truly amazing. Song birds are kept in... More

It's not really a street... More like a walk through. It's maybe a 5-10 min walk through. But if you're planning to do all the "market streets" anyways this one is ok. You really don't see this everyday. A bunch of birds of all colors and sizes. It's sad to see some of them. Some do not look they are... More

The place is not worth a visit unless your hotel is nearby. It's a really small market that takes 5 minutes to walk through. If you're expecting a nice market in a park setting, you'll be disappointed.

While walking around the flower markets we could hear the twitter of birds so we decided to follow the sound and came across a street where birds are sold. Quite intriguing to visit if time permits.

Worth a visit if you are in the area. Some beautiful birds. No smoking in the street so it's quite serene. A lovely walk with your family.

You don't need a lot of time but Bird Street is worth a stroll. Lots of older men take their birds to the area for air and conversation (and gambling, I think.) there are plenty of retailers catering to bird owners. Best to get permission to take pictures but we had no problem.
