Absolute chaos, but great fun

This road is out of control - traffic chaos, people everywhere, street vendors, tour touters, it has the lot. Along with great shopping. Has to be experienced.

A must of course, crowded and bustling with activity. So many shops and palaces. Quite a lot of traffic though and crossing the street is not always possible.
