This is a huge market and has enough trinkets and trifles to keep even the least enthusiastic shopper engrossed. From locally made handicrafts, jewelry, lanterns, textiles, clothing, quilts, statues, housewares, and more, you can spend hours floating from shop to shop. Buying is merely one of the things to do here. Just walking around the market, lit up at night with a medley of sounds, smells and sights is an experience unto itself. To make sure your experience doesn't turn awry, carry along your hotel's business card so that a tuk-tuk or taxi driver can understand where you want to go to. Walking around, trying to find your hotel in the dark, though an adventure in its own right can be vaguely unsettling.
