There are many beautiful buildings worth looking at but there are also many abandoned structures that spoil the overall effect. We took a van tour through and did not receive much info.

The city is colorful. It is a UNESCO world heritage. The day I arrived was Flag Day. I saw the happiness of the people proud of their flag. Every person that passes by you are so polite

Good for a day trip. Lots of stores and stalls for touristy shopping. The vendors are not as pushy as other places I've visited.
