The place gets busy the whole night. Be careful with the prices, it can vary from time to time, store to store. There are street foods along the way. Relatively clean and covered from the rain. Plenty of imitation products.

Some great options to buy copy-cat brand watches in this market. If you bargain hard you can get a good quality copy of an expensive brand at a very good price. Cash is king. You must haggle. That’s part of the fun.
