  • This area contains all kinds of restaurants, grocery stores and shops. He must choose the restaurant where you can eat as cleanliness leaves to be desired in some places. The owners and staff of a few restaurants are not always courteous. There is an urban legend that says that if the restaurant is full of people from Asia, it is a good sign.
