Review of Shaping Market

The Shaping Market really has everything. We almost took a puppy on the trip with us. You can see many minorities in their national dress. Produce is not as diverse as in other markets. You can also buy many items for the household and some clothing. Found a wonderful piece of Dali marble to bring home.

This was one the most intense time of our trip. We went to this market not sure of what we would find. And even though we thought it would be bigger, this market was very rich in colors and local flavor.
Almost all the older folks are dressed in their Bai traditional clothes and sell mainly food.
Surprisingly, some of them will even speak a little English.

We originally thought it would take us about 30 mn to go around but ended up spending about 1.5 H as we found it so interesting to watch the locals on their weekly shopping trip.

And if you buy something, some of them will even agree to get photographed with you.

This is only a weekly market which takes place on mondays so make sure to plan your trip so that you won't miss it.
