Very quaint with an ancient Venetian feel. Lots of shops, restaurants and people. We went both by day and by evening and I must say that the evening tour was my favourite, when all the lanterns were lit and there was a festival like atmosphere.

This area has it all. From traditional markets to western coffee shops. You can even take a ride in a sampan. Lots of tourists make this area a very active location.

Many new buildings made to look old...lots of food kiosks (take some local money—I never did find an ATM); completely walkable and safe. Pleasant diversion!
