If you like Muslim food, and who doesn't, this area at night is for you. Noodles and yang rou chan (lamb shaslick) are the specialties.

its not ONLY the drum tower alone that you need to visit, meet the locals at the morning markets, or join in with the daily exercise classes The locals are very friendly and will have a good laugh at your expense when you join in with the daily exercise classes
