Good way to spend a few hours, or to have lunch or dinner. Proximity to the sea is great. You can see the remains of the old fort. Good range of restaurants and bars. Variety of... read more

Good way to spend a few hours, or to have lunch or dinner. Proximity to the sea is great. You can see the remains of the old fort. Good range of restaurants and bars. Variety of shops is limited to just a few. Depending on your interest, this may not be a big deal. It's worth paying a visit.

Area is a nice place for a coffee in the morning or a cold drink later in the day before exploring the city. You will find many designer shops here.

You can park in the Renaissance 5-story parking garage for free and then check out this little square. There are some nice outdoor restaurants (but it is HOT in there as there's no breeze) and then walk across the bridge (or take the ferry) to Punda for a bit of shopping. We wandered around and took pictures and checked out... More

When my wife asked him to be respectful and talk in a respectful way he start laughing. There is no sign at the entrance (I looked before we entered with... More

If staying at the Renaissance Hotel & Casino, you will venture through this area. The evening entertainment was just amazing. We had live entertainment every night except for Sunday night. Lots of restaurant , bars, and shopping.

I loved this historic Fort. I was so impressed with how well the city has preserved the original structure yet modernized the inside to include some great restaurants, shops and bars. I enjoyed being able to walk the old stone steps and go up to the top to see the view from the open areas as well as through the... More

Group of higher end shops right out side of the cruise ship dock. Also has a Starbucks, movie theatre, and many high end restaurants. The information guide told us that it can be more expensive for souvenirs, but that they are more likely to be authentic and from the island. View is really lovely from the top so don't miss...

This Village used to be a fort to protect the city. It has now become an area housing shops and restaurants. If you come by cruise, like we did, it is an easy walk to get to. Make sure you take a look inside the shops, as it is interesting to see how they display their items. You also get... More
