We liked this area and went to an open cafe several times, just to sit and watch the world go by. Apart from the women selling bangles, not too much hassle. Some interesting shops and workshops.

This little square gives a fascinating insight into the intricate works of the local tin workers. You can watch the workers hand making lanterns and purchase at reasonable prices. The square is half dug-up at present, they are obviously re-laying the pavers so that is...More

Perhaps this square will return to its atmospheric self when current major construction is completed but for now it is a mess. Not recommended. A few inexpensive restaurants and boutiques remain open during the works.
