This market was not where the map here shows it to be. After asking some people walking by they said it was moved indoors somewhere. Luckily there’s a great open air food market nearby that was a good substitute.

Just a short stroll on this day & night market. You can find some souvenirs shops but mostly food stalls. You can try some scorpions, stinky tofu, meat skewers, drinks etc.

When we went it was definitely there and big. We went late at night 10ish and it was fully operational. Don't miss it - you will look back and be glad you went.
