maybe interesting or fancy for the foreigners for the first sight, actually it's such a tourist trap. nothing really special from the stands or shops but really crowded, and don't expect to take that icon pic 'coz you could hardly squeeze onto the city tower that stands across the street.

Old buildings, cobbled roads, lots of red lanterns. Picturesque, especially at dawn till 800am before all the tour groups have gotten there and the shops have opened up. After this, tons of tourists and lots of shops with different stuff to buy. Still interesting but not so picturesque or tranquil as the early morning.

The South Avenu. The most popular street in the city, with quite a few restaurants, hotels and shops.
