  • Another one of those markets. It is always interesting to visit markets in the countries you visit to get a glimpse of street life. Albert Market was no exception, but it is no different than other markets I visited; crowded, cluttered, messy and the same variety.

  • It was so traditionally enchanting shopping in open markets and interacting with locals
  • Good market but they have to give some important on infrastructure
