It's truly amazing people move from their home lands and then build it where they settle. I don't understand it. The art details in the tower and Fountain is excellent. A must see.

Not an area which remotely appealed to us. Was filthy, rubbish everywhere, run down and unappealing. Felt really dodgy and I wouldn't eat there in a million years despite getting a few recommendations.

Could not find much shops here. The eateries were also not quite up to the mark. Worth visiting only if time permits on a short tour.
