The bird market is a colourful and a lively place to meet all kinds of animals, not just birds. Locals love national and international birds as it symbolizes wealth and is as important as a house, a wife and a keris (dagger). Get a glimpse into local culture.
According to Western culture, this market is far from animal friendly; too many birds in a small cage, fishes packed in small plastic bags, turtles.... But, it really gives you a glimpse into local culture.
Necessary equipment and food for all kind of animals can be found on the market as well. You can find the flower market next doors.
