Small town, and not organized in proper way. Except the beautiful gate, and some market signs here and there. You can't feel its different or its Chinese town.

Well do not expect something big. It is only few streets, but full of shops and restaurants. The food is really tasty. I personally prefer the place called Happy Seasons. It is crowded and food is tasty. A good sign for quality
