Some of your best shopping can be done here! They have plenty of restaurants and cafes that are really good, At night, the street food is the best and not to miss at all. more »
The streets are almost empty these days. And food stalls are gone! Finally!! It was hard to move before and now it's perfect!! Hope tourists will be back soon but without food stalls.
