Some simply come to catch up on the latest news or gossip.
Discover the colorful traditional dress of the different tribes, a surprising cattle market, the sights and smells of exotic herbs, spices and medicinal concoctions; the impressive farmers market showcasing the rich variety of fruit and veg grown in the area, as well as an abundance of rice wine and street food stalls – this market is truly an unforgettable and authentic experience, more so if you are a food or photography enthusiast.
