  • From the bus station walk 10 minutes or so, there are some narrow streets. Friendly Guesthouse is all over the place, so it's cheap with no reserve. The nights Western-style bars and comfy as best atmosphere. 1 times to visit.

  • This area is entirely populated by tourists and by characters who on the most inexperienced lives on them sneaking etc pretty much every night something obnoxious, drunken tourists, quarrels, small accidents. If you feel like confusion, being the typical tourist a little rough this is the suitable area. If times a little life (funny but not stupid) avoid this area, especially in the evening and at night. Repeat area for tourists who don't know travel.
