    It looks like a movie set, or a theme park. Completely fake and rebuilt enclosed area, without actual inhabitants. Overpriced, overcrowded. Avoid if you care about authenticity.  more »

    This is a great place to walk around and admire the scenery. It would also be a romantic place to take a boat tour.  more »
