This picturesque alley is so named because it is narrow enough for two lovers to kiss from opposite sides of the street.

The balconies actually seem to overlap from some angles. So it doesn't take much imagination to see a couple kissing over and across the narrow alley. A souvenir shop below seemed to be doing brisk business. While a couple of girls were kissing for a...More
