It moved to the present location in the 1990s. There is almost everything can be found here at a bargaining local price (not a tourist price). Clothes, general merchandise, flowers, birds, insects, fishes, fruits, herbs, hardware, furniture, Chinese wares and more miscellaneous, etc. are all available in this Bazaar, the list is endless, you cannot find everything, but you will see things you haven't seen elsewhere. Several Chinese-style eating and snacking can be found in here too, if you tired and hungry after a long walk around the market, you can happily throw yourself inside any food stall to enjoy the mouth-watering foods.
