This is a nice little local park for an evening walk with several places, where locals dance classic dancing. In addition to this local student approach foreigners to train their English, and this is a very interesting way to learn about the city, the people, and the country. Though only sparsely lit, it is very safe and cosy.

In the morning walking this place gives me the joy of seeing locals doing their daily exercise or their love for dancing in one of the hut. Just feel at peace in the middle of the city.

At night fall, this park comes alive: badminton, exercise machines ... even ballroom dancing?!? Much of this park is too hemmed in by busy streets on all sides to be relaxing, but sometimes, if you squint, you can forget for a moment the mayhem of...More
