Customer Travel Tip: Check the reviewer before reading the review. Some of my answers were not totally accurate because answers were demanded but there was no true response available. The Asian restaurants to "one o'clock" of the central station exit were particularly good.

Liked: The post World War rebuilding did not make a Disneyworld city. What survived did, what didn't was rebuilt in a modern way. The Surinam-based Asian restaurants were particularly good

Disliked: Not really
