More than flowers
If you've ever been to a Chinese street market then you will know there will be stalls selling pretty much anything, however there's a lot decorative items that are worth while taking a look at.

Each year the theme will be based on the Chinese Zodiac animal, and 2016 was is the year of the monkry, so it's only befitting to have the Monkey King walking around.
Food and snack stalls
If you're not interested in flowers, then at least come for the food as there is a large stall for food such as squid on sticks and other seafood.
This is Tang Hua which translates to "sugar drawing", it is maltose a crystalized syrup and is drawn by the vendor. You spin the needle and which ever Zodiac animal it stops at he will make it.
