The old quarter is stunning! The architecture, the busy streets, the people, the markets and the colour everywhere!

Nice, busy, noisy, full of life, great food and nice hotels in all flavors. Just go in and eat where you want, try also the smaller eat stalls and not only the more western restaurants. Just eat cooked and boiled food.
