I went here not too long ago, it's a good place for bargains and it's better if you can blend in as a local. If that can't be helped and you stand out like a tourist in the crowd - be prepared to have people snatch or pick pocket. There is too many small alleys and places to run after they snatch. Just have your wits about you and don't keep big amounts of money of you. I've been here with my local family and blended in quite well without drawing attention of others and had no problems. On the other hand I've taken my husband here and he is of European decent and this made things more harder for both of us and it drew attention of little kids begging for money people following us and then attempted snatching. My advice is don't wear sunglasses that are of expensive value or jewellery that's going to get snatched. And hold onto your handbag. I only prevented a snatch and grab incident by one of the stall holders I bought from advising me that I'm going to get robbed soon if I don't leave as the usual snatchers were already starting to stake out my handbag. If you get robbed don't try to chase them as they're all one big family there. You'll end up hurt more.
Safe and happy shopping. I got many bargains before being put off by the stated above.
