  • Beautiful markets and friendly people. Due to pandemic restrictions with PNG, potatoes, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower were unavailable in October 2021. Hopefully that changes soon.
  • Love this place. All datang market. You can find fresh veggies, tropical fruits, fishes (big and small), eggs (cooked and fresh), potato, sweet potato, cassava etc. You also can find some fabrics. Be careful of the traffic and the crowds.
