Lively city full of Friendly people, plenty of places to see, amazing/huge variety of food options to try any time in the day or night. Multiple travel options just need to choose the right mode of transportation and plan around the peak hours so as not to get stuck in traffic or crazy rush. Hard to get lost as people are rather helpful. Beware of dodgy people, best to plan with some legitimate tour guide or operator or hotel to play it safe.

One of the busiest cities we have ever been in, but everyone seems to be ok with it. I think it is best to go on a tour to make sure you see a lot and are able to get through traffic.
