no sense to complain this area is loud and crowded - of course it is - it is meant to be for hundreds of years. lots of places with live music, dancing girls, street sellers, restaurants, shops - everything concentrated by and on the street....More
We stopped there only for food. And the food was great (vegetarian restaurant called pure lotus). The street is small, with beautiful lights, lots of little shops, and one supermarket. It's nice to see but there's lots of noise and is overcrowded so be prepared....More
