There is nothing really special about this marketplace, except the new style of huts for fruit and drink sellers, which are interestingly arranged. The foods and drinks are just like the ones you can find else where. Parking lots for visitors's vehicles are not yet well organized. Even a few visitors park their vehicles on Begadang II parking lot. It is good to have this Satuday Evening marketplace. At least, residents of Bandar Lampung now have more options as to where to go for shopping.
The new market place on Jl. A Yani may be a place for young people to get together, especially around the monument. Visitors from districts seem to enjoy around it as they do not have such a beautiful place in their home towns.
Up to the present time, visitors to this market place seems to have dropped off simply because perhaps the visitors did not find anything special or targeted vendors was not able to provide things that could attract visitors.
It is too bad that this new market place is finally closed, so on every Saturday evening you will not find it.
