“Great ambiance on a Friday night!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

Was recommended by the hotel to visit on a Friday night. Was not disappointed! Loads of small stalls set up along the alleyway with people selling local handicrafts, food, drinks & souveniers. The place was really buzzing with people & live music. Overall, great ambiance!! Lots of cafe, restaurant and bar options too!

“Hasnt changed a lot in 25 years”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

I am glad it hasnt! Still a good selection of restaurants and bars,from very cheap to a bit more!
Pleasant small cheap hotels but now with some really expensive ones.
Worth remembering that if you eat or drink in the large hotel there is always 10% service added plus 7 % government tax so much cheaper to eat in the local restaurants.
