It is really beautiful. The design is mixture of French and Chinese. There got many shops and foods.

Lots of this is now just shops but that doesn't take away from the undoubted pleasure of wandering round. I was struck by how well preserved it all is and how it feels, in parts, just like being in southern Europe.
