  • Such a delight to visit. Love the little shops, the cafes, and the restaurants. So many things to look at, always clean and pleasant. There's artwork even on the floor. Always end up buying lots of jewelries and a few skinny Phoenician statues.
  • Love this place. Shops here mostly have genuine products, unlike other touristy areas around the world. People around the area are extremely friendly. You'll definitely enjoy it here!
