Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Sightseeing & culture

Age Range:
31-40

Customer Travel Tip: If relying on public transportation, just pick an area, and stick to it for the day. Mainly to save time and headaches,

Liked: I just love seeing the sights, and while I did not do much of this, the diversity of foods that could be tried.

Disliked: The public transportation could be better, though not really bad in itself. I find the big problem being frequency, as it seems to be the norm for the subways to be every 20 minutes, even on weekdays. Also, the connections seem to be deliberately be missed by mere minutes. Like when transferring from a bus to subway, I would miss the subway by less than a minute, as I could not run fast enough to catch the Metro.
