  • Located in the city centre, not far from the Central Town Hall, it offers to see at all! However, the aisles are very often congested by stalls and the like, making it difficult to get traffic. However, it remains well built with shops upstairs and well compartmentalized. All around, we invaded by street vendors. The market has security posts everywhere and a fire-fighting device for the appropriate. it has days and hours of operation, scrupulously respected. Unfortunately, it is too loaded with vendors without shops, selling on the ground.

  • MAPS. Site on the map for ME, LONELY PLANET written by Grand Marché (2-storey giant market) and the area serves as a market. Vegetables, meat, fruit, clothing (2-part) and as far as an aura for the local market.         Barker come calling, but roughly postcards and maps, will occasionally soliciting prepaid cards for mobile phones, such as. In other languages the score or find something there is a description and reviews there are bargains, so look carefully.         Personal market entrance (eat space and crowding the entrance on the southwest side of the Southeast side, have been immediately evident and street stalls) of Bukkake gohan (toilet with rice) is helpful. Put the ingredients (hormones boiled fish, vegetables, etc) over white rice and eaten by hand. The basin! 500 CFA with affordable and delicious. If local stalls to dine with the locals without resistance, do not know that without resistance, market entrance Bukkake gohan (toilet with rice) is recommended can be. Feeling like going to stall in Taiwan, and led in English, by all means.
