  • This place is huge and it's a maze if you don't turn on your body's internal GPS you'll get lost easily because everything looks the same. There's nothing special to see here, the food aren't particularly good and some of the places smells really bad because garbage is everywhere.
  • Had lunch at a Chinese food cafe outside the garden, they charged double the price but serviced cold food.
  • A really fun shopping area. The high traffic areas a kind of tourist traps, so be brave and explore the alleys. Bring your negotiating skills.
  • 這就是我想要看的建築想要體驗的古代氛圍!!整個老街都很適合拍照,怎麼拍都好看!!在這我買了超多東西的,雖然不保證便宜,不過貨比家比較好,光是一個小小的香水陶瓶,我就看到至少3個價格在這裡,但是相對外灘,這裡東西是比較便宜的
  • 有很多很多的食肆及售賣紀念品的店鋪 , 建築物都是仿古建築 , 街上尚算整潔 , 但洗手間不好找 , 離開時等很久才有計程車
