With my spouse / partner

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Romantic getaway Sightseeing & culture

Age Range:
18-24

Customer Travel Tip: Learn the streets. Everything has a street name a map will most definitely help. We had a tough time with google maps just because of the tall buildings it could not pin point our exact locations at times.

Liked: Loved the culture. Enjoyed the sightseeing and exploring the plaza.

Disliked: did not like the men who tried to get you to take their stupid pop corn seed to feed the pigeons. All they want is your money $$. probably the only thing I disliked about the city was the people who pray on travelers. Becarefrul most of them are pick-pocketers
