I love this sort of thing and its frantic atmosphere but with less than an hour here it was a little to frantic for my taste and I hardly got to look at the various stalls much less buy anything.This is really a full day excursion and not for the faint hearted

The travel time was 2 hours each way.The bus driver got a speeding ticket and we waited 1 hour in the bus to see if he could continue because he was losing his licence.we hardly got to see anything

Very busy, you just had to look at something and you were pounced upon. Interesting place but didn't buy anything.

Just walk there yourself, no need for a guide. It's hot, crowded, noisy, irritating sales people, stuff, stuff, and more stuff. You just have to experience it, keep looking - there will be something you want! Bargain your head off, then walk away and they will chase you to get your last offer. We have been three times, got great buys each time.
