If you like visiting local markets as much as I do, definitely check this one out. Get ready to be shocked by some of the animals on sale to eat!

Found great deals there, while browsing with friends, including a lithium charger, a pair of boxers and adorable silver earrings! Great bargainers in abundance!

The building has as its core a central dome. The Central Market is a bustling emporium of numerous stalls selling a wide variety of upmarket goods. Here you buy things don't forget to bargain with them.

Central Market has absolutely everything. I went for the jewelry selection, which is abundant, and reasonably priced. My friend who lives local gets everything for his apartment here - pots and pans, linens, food, you name it. Most vendors will bargain, even the jewelry counters. Russian Market is better for clothing and scarves.

Whereas one goes to the Russian Market to stock up on souvenirs, the Central Market is just a free for all for everything. Silver kitchen ware? Nail polish? Pearl necklaces? The Central Market has it.

This domed shaped structure is the largest and best jewels and gold market that I visited in South East Asia. The thousands of objects in display are surprisingly stylish and reasonably priced. It is dazzling, I could spend days inside!
