Which is the better market?

Which is better to visit- Mackies Sat night Bazaar or Sat Night Market Arpora?

What's the difference between them?

I prefer Mackies, it's more compact and has a better entertainment stage.

The one formerly known as Ingos is much larger where everything is more spaced out, s'pose it's personal choice really.

Well i prefer Mackies , not so far out ,on flat ground , ( apora can be steep in part) and I like the music area with a stage, its so much better., its bigger more room to sit and eat and watch, many more chairs.

I also happen to like the "feel of the place more , its very pretty with the lights all shineing on the river.

I agree with the two other replies, my favourite is Mackies too. All for the same reasons.

Hi Bindoobaba,

more space is perfect. I am not too fond of being in a crush if I can avoid it.

thanks
