This is the top bazaar in the country, a typical old
fashioned oriental bazaar with plenty of exotic goods to
find. That is jewelry, clothing, antiques, lacquer ware,
every day items, art, paintings, some stalls with drinks and
local food and in resent month (2012) some banks to change.
If you want to change money this market is the best place
but change it at one of the shops inside not at the banks,
the bank employees either sleep or are just chattering or
make bla bla at the mobile. When asking them for changing
they come up with all kind of excuses so there is no need
for them to work.
Also don't take the posted exchange rates serious they have
nothing to do with reality. This market is best for jewelry,
precious stones, in particular jade, ruby, sapphire,
souvenirs, woodcarvings and special ethnic jewelry and body
