Has been kept some traditional Chinese architecture, transformed in a modern, commercial neighborhood. Worth really to be visited.

If there was a zero option Iwould give it. What used to be a charming, quiet, friendly backpackers respite and paradise has ‘modernised’ to a blaring, pop, neon venue which I can only describe as Niagara Falls on steroids. Awful, crowded, gaudy, avoid at all...More
