Two little girls were riding a bicycle parked in front of a shop

On a side street from the big street, there is a local market called Bailan, which means white orchid. In spite of the beautiful name, the market is not particularly neat and clean, and it is not lined with flower shops. It was just an ordinary market where the locals came to buy their daily necessities. My guidebook did not mention this market at all. I was able to come to this unassuming market thanks to Google Maps. Without Google Maps, I wouldn't have known it existed, let alone been able to come here.

As I walked through the market, I saw a bicycle parked in front of a shop. It looked like an electric bike because it has a device under the saddle. And there are child seats attached to both the front and back of the saddle, with a little girl sitting in each one. They're similar in age, so they're either older or twins. They must have come here with their parents to do their shopping. But for a little girl, coming to a market that sells only commodities was not a pleasant experience, and the girl sitting behind her looked unhappy.
