We loved our time at the central market! We managed to park in the car park right outside (good price) and we had a wonderful time strolling around with 3 kids (2 in a double pushchair). Very family friendly, very clean and lots of great products. Great layout! It wasn’t chaotic like the street markets or Chinatown. The prices were pretty good too, wondering there are a lot of touristy things inside. This was a hidden gem!
You have lot of small shops inside. The best way to get to this place is by taking the metro/ subway. These small shops have all verities of items starting from crafts, clothes, jewelry and souvenirs. I wouldn't call it low price but you will find items in mid range pricing.
