  Fish of all sorts ready for the pot

As a nightlife spot it's a bit odd, depending on your definition.
I found it very, very interesting to visit the semi-indoor markets (fish, spices, vegetables, fruits, meat, garments, you name it) in the Shantinagar area after darkness has fallen outside. Here the freshest ingredients for today's dinner og tomorrow's breakfast are purchased.
This is a good place to buy your mosquito net, too.
Just take in the atmosphere and be prepared for a bit of stir; this ain't a tourist spot.
