Temple Street Night Market
The Temple Street Night Market is more about the experience and less about the shopping. Considered a good way to get accustomed with local traditions, visitors will be able to savour succulent sea crab dishes from some of the food outlets before trying their hand at bargaining for gadgets of all shapes and sizes. Also, a good time to head out would be after 8.00 p.m.
