    Smile busy, lively, bustling

    We have lots of night markets here, and they are parts of our life. We simply couldn't do without them.
    When a night market is full of people and loud noises, we often use an adjective to describe it. I wonder what you would say to describe it--Maybe, lively, bustling, or a better adjective? Thanks.

    Thanks, Harry.
    But the word in our mother tongue has a positively loud and busy overtone.
