This area has it all. From traditional markets to western coffee shops. You can even take a ride in a sampan. Lots of tourists make this area a very active location.

Despite the crowds, we had a nice afternoon here. Walked all over every bridge and crannie, fighting the throngs of other tourists. Then we took a somewhat relaxing boat ride. All and all a pleasant experience.
