Looked hard to find something but its very hard to trust someone when you ask the price and they say 200 dollars and in no time the price drops to 8 dollars .I felt like the whole place was one big den of thieves .

Not a lot of good deals but very colorful. Always haggle on the price. A lot of stuff made in China and the booths often have all the same items. Although there are some unique areas with specialty goods.
