this is a market in dali that was open for third moon fair.
i got there a day late with my new travel companions and friends from australia. but it wasn’t too late to not enjoy the market with all its fair food, and merchandise from around southwestern asia, including yunnan, laos, myanmar and thailand.
one of the most interesting things we saw at the fair was all the dried reptiles, preserved animals, and poached animals. there were shark fins, penis, dried herbs, turtle shells, dried snake, lizards, and even crocodiles. all of which were probably endangered species and illegal to have, let alone sell.
i didnt get any preserved penises or other unidentifiable illegal animals, but i did enjoy the market. even went back two more times.
