An interesting, varied Street not far from Chinatown. A number of eating options and bars. Worth a visit.

A lot of local delights. Many choices and stalls which still offer traditional delights.

Interesting area of old buildings that is worth walking around for local flavor. I found a guide map for tourists from the government that gave some detail about particular buildings.
