We knew we were at the exact spot when we saw rows and rows of stalls displaying all sorts of things. If you are familiar with Petaling Street in Kuala Lumpur, you will get similar experience here except there were more things to be bought and seen.
I wonder why it is called Ladies Market. The stall operators were both men and women, but they were mostly women when I was there. The goods were also for both sexes and everybody could come to this place, not just for ladies.
In order to get the lowest price for whatever items that you want to get, you should put your bargaining skills at test here. No matter how small the things were, like key-chains, fridge magnets and t-shirts, we still had to bargain. It was something difficult as we did not really know how low the price could get, or what would be the margin price for the items on sale. If you offer a price too low, the sellers will call you "CRAZY" and it seemed once you have agreed on a price but you simply walk away, they will shout (or curse) at you in anger. I guess this is how business transaction is carried out in this kind of place. I had similar experience when I was in Beijing last year.
