We took our teenagers to our favourite place iwhen we travelled in 1996. They embraced the chaos. One got a henna tattoo the other braided hair and both bought some street food,. They freaked at scorpions on a stick and moaned when there was no wifi.(rare)
We all bought the cheap T shirts, necklaces and tat and laughed all afternoon on how quickly we were blending in. We bored our kids senseless with stories of how it used to be in the good old days . But they loved it just the same .
It's safe fof families , just don't take too much money to be scammed or tempted by all the goodies and fake Superdry. We let the kids loose to walk and discover stuff for themselves .
It brought back some very fond memories for us and gave the kids some great new ones of their own. 1st Tatoo ! 1st scorpion and tarantula ! First time Mum and Dad tell them some real adventure stories of before they were born. It's hyped up and there are newer places but go all the same . If only to stock up on pressies and chat to other travellers. Beware though ,although quiet enough during the day, nightime is a completely different story and can get very boisterous boozy ,, larey and loud! !!
