What an amazing and lively neighbourhood where you find the mix of culture and light life . One of my favourite area to just walk around or to sip few beers .

Loved this place. Colorful, chaotic, welcoming, glorious aromas, food, shopping, coffee. A feast for the senses. Do yourself a favour and do a food tour on foot with local guides. The best experiences are found in the narrow laneways and tiny shops that you wouldnt know existed without local expertise. If you are looking for a sanitised westernized city experience this is not the place for you.
