  • Nothing much to see here. Most of the shops closed on Saturday night but the traffic was bad. Not much choices for dinner.  more »
  • After a few years, the place is still the same as previous. Not much to see in this Chinatown. Beware of the drivers here as they drive fast in the narrow lane and tend to honk the pedestrians.  more »
