  • Seeing the number of European-style palaces that surround and various cafes, restaurants, bistros that frame

  • Is a place to visit but without dwelling too. You can admire the French colonial style but unfortunately it's all decadent. Interesting is the market behind the hotel. Very colorful but alas here Chinoiserie are everywhere. Care to take pictures without first asking permission, especially if there are women.
