The central markets in around the world make for both an interesting local experience and a place to buy cheap food, flowers, clothing and souvenirs.
My favourite things to buy were fresh flowers to decorate my hotel rooms and to walk back drinking a fresh coconut.
The markets have a great selection of locally grown vegetables, fruits, meats and seafoods. Go early seafood - though freshly caught, it sits in the hot sun.
Souvenir are cheaper here that in the boutique stores - all sorts of jewellery (including illegal tortoise shell items), strands of pearls, sarongs and carvings are available.
