WARNING. My husband said it was like a concentration camp for birds and other animals and I have to agree on that. We miss understood our Becak driver and thought it was a boat market but instead it was a bird market... It was terrible....More

A lot of birds ... from everywhere in Indonesia, but not only. You can also meet monkey, turtles, snakes... A fantastic discovery for the kids to discover a new culture.

If you are an animal lover this is probably not a place you should go to unless you want to confront yourself with the reality of how animals are kept and treated here. As many pointed out it's not just a bird market, they offer...More

Heard about the place. Didn't know what to expect, but tried to keep an open mind. Wouldn't encourage it though. Some of the birds looked alright but some didn't look too healthy. May even be a health hazard.
