Simply one of the most beautiful and amazing cities we visited. Very clean and diverse architecture. Lots to see and visit. Easy to get around via taxi or walking. This place is what a lot of cities could be.

Just another big , busy , crowded city , with tall buildings. If that turns you on - go for it. Expensive. Noisy.
