as of November 2011, this place is not yet (at least) fun for tourist or even traveller with wacky sense of humor.
at daytime, it's a place to go if you want to buy offerings, local fruits, and mostly anything the local would buy in the most common standard, well,... even lower than that. but a good experience if you found a fun local friend or a very open minded, creative, and fun loving guide that understands what to show you there without being touristy at all
at night, it's a mishmash of local (Indonesia) kind of having a fun night out. or if you a 10 year old local kid looking for a bargain anything with your first holiday allowance. it could be fun, but not on your own.
beware of pickpockets in the crowd!
or evil-illusionist when not in the crowd...
i went there to buy Balinese music CDs and they still sell audio tapes from yesteryears
both are night time offerings
important tip (if you really really want to go there):
1. dress cheaply
2. act poor
3. bring a guide you are really comfortable with (as in good 'ol pal comfortable)
4. bring cash only, in smaller notes
5. bargain like crazy. think something crazy in EU or US, multiply by 10 crazy marks
6. buy cheap stuff that are not quality products
7. have fun
8. you actually won't get food poisoning from the crowded food-stalls, for some people it's just the matter of re-adjusting to new and potent kind of spices into their digestive system
feel free to shoot me any questions regarding this and other wacky markets in Bali, it's my other hobby
