Customer Travel Tip: The market hall in Little India. Fascinating experience and interesting insight in absolutely different views on hygiene ;-)

Liked: There is good reason why the old town is on the world heritage list. When you avoid the tourist hordes (very early or in backstreets) you will have an interesting town to visit.

Disliked: The center seems to be developing into a Disneyland with myriads of tourists and an annoying level of noise and air-pollution.
