Cho Cholon
Cholon Market is in District 10 which is to the West of center city. It is much like Ben Than with less interest in pleasing tourists. Some sellers have better prices others will ask what ever they think tourists will pay and it is often rather high. There are some very ornate statues and fountains in the center courtyard. The center courtyard also has some nice gardens.

Bus station about a block in front of Cholon Market. As I took this photo a security guard came and told me not to take pictures of the bus station.
