“Busy and interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

This area seems to never sleep. There is always something going on. Lots of cafes, shops, and scammers. Keep your wallet in the front and watch your handbags. I felt safe but on guard. There are warnings galore about pick pockets and scammers. Not much different than most busy, touristy areas of any city. Beware of the men selling "pot" and other things. They are selling fake goods. That's why the police don't intervene. They may even grab your bag or try to steal. And once you encounter one, they swarm aggressively upon you. Just be assertive, if not aggressive and tell them back off. They usually do. But, generally this is a fun lively spot

“Great for a stroll”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

Including a cup of coffee & some sweet stuff. A lot of shopping options, too. A bit touristy in that there are just so many people most of the time and you have to be alert all the time but all in all worth the time.
