A walk round the local market is interesting but can be very muddy if it is the rainy season. This is mainly a market for the locals to purchase their every day needs and is very colourful and you will see very few foreigners there. . Be careful as porters rush around with baskets and boxes delivering them to the stalls. Good for photography. Try the dragon fruit if you see it for sale--it's delicious.
