“The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Like the whole of the area - dated with very little to attract visitors. The Centre is full of shops selling tat and the constant harassment by sellers. I have no problem with any persons sexuality but I do have a problem with perversion and this centre is full of it. Had a lovely meal in a Chinese restaurant. Good food, friendly service. On paying the bill was presented with a free drink with the otherwise very professional Chinese staff making a huge thing of me looking in the bottom of the glass which showed a naked female. Why??? Nice to see gay couples being able to openly display their relationship but the tacky side does them no good. Not a place for families.

“my views of the yumbo centre during my visit 22/9/13 to 29/9/13”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

the yumbo is brash,boisterous and brilliant.Firstly in the morning you are confronted with various stalls selling all types of tat to real class items.Be prepared to haggle,haggle and haggle.These traders do not understand the word NO.They try and coerce you into buying.Stick to your guns Land you will in all probability get what you want at a much reduced price.Later on in the day the brash and boisterous starts.There are many bars,restaurants from normal to gay.This venue is predominately gay but caters for everyone.Be warned that some of the Bars are not suitable for children.They might see something which you would find distasteful.So beware,I visited Rickys Cabaret Bar which is a Drag show.I thoroughly enjoyed my visits to that venue.Its brilliant.Of course there are other bars catering for the gay community and they open from 22.00 hrs until approx. 04.00 hrs.This centre is open minded and everybody blends in together.There is also a Mini Golf and some other childrens facilities.But mainly the Yumbo is more geared to the Adult fraternatty.I thoroughly enjoyed my visits to the Yumbo and recommend you visit to see for yourselves.Prices for drinks are reasonable and restaurants are good value for money spent.

“Did not meet my expectations”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Shops have low quality products and there are employees whose job is to trying to convince tourists to visit their shops. Some restaurants and bars there are not bad. However I felt that the whole place is more for gay men and not for single ladies
