Wanted this to be great, but it was really so average and touristy. Couldn’t find any unique shopping and the underground looked like commuter malls to us. Disappointed.

A busy street that crosses downtown that is full of shops, restaurants and night life. In fact, it was the only street rocking in downtown on A recent Sunday night. You will eventually get to it if you want to do some serious shopping.

What a great place to visit. There are lots of places to shop and quite a few good restaurants to eat at. Everything from high end eating to quick takeout food. All of this walkable from a number of close by hotels.

Nice shopping if you like malls. Lots of chain stores. Most large stores connect to underground shopping. The metro is nearby so you don’t need a car.
