Hard to appreciate the culture and vibe when you are
1, constantly harassed even followed
2 , faced with aggressive sellers if you question the obvious lies they tell you about the product they are selling ie: the material type and or try to agree on a reasonable price
3, feeling unsafe, in particular when one of the few nice shop owners insists on accompanying us 4 females when we visit the cash point in this area .
4, feeling threatend when told by the locals we are with to hold our handbags on the inside and securely .
5, have young children sellers asking for you to please buy ( sad)
The above i assume more prevalent if you are Caucasian and female .. Makes you a prime target !
Didn't see and tourist police around and I bet it was required .
Lots of the stuff is junk but it could be enjoyable if you are with a group that includes males , have nothing on your person that could be of value ( including a phone ) cover your hair and face if you are an obvious looking tourist to avoid being harassed .
