The first destination is a vibrant food market where locals regularly go shopping. Beginning with the rice part, move on to the fish and seafood sector, where you may see a lot of live fish, frogs, shrimp, and crabs. The meat and vegetable sections are located next to the fish section. Within two days of being harvested, vegetables are sold in the market, keeping them extremely fresh. The section of fruits and flowers towards the back of the market is where you can smell the stringiest fruit, durian. You could attempt a little piece of durian if you are sufficiently daring.
