WARNING. My husband said it was like a concentration camp for birds and other animals and I have to agree on that. We miss understood our Becak driver and thought it was a boat market but instead it was a bird market... It was terrible....More

Heard about the place. Didn't know what to expect, but tried to keep an open mind. Wouldn't encourage it though. Some of the birds looked alright but some didn't look too healthy. May even be a health hazard.
