The night markets were mostly food stalls when I went, just a couple of cheap jewellery stalls mixed in. There was live music and a bit of a vibe. Kids seemed to like it.

Great place for different kinds of food, both savoury and sweet. Reasonable prices. It's not really a market for crafts, as there were only a couple of stalls, but some of the street shops stay open for souvenirs.
