Small, busy, lively, full of large groups and rather overcrowded even in October. This is a place to see once only for the experIce. No need to stop for any length of time.

Meeting place for all tour groups, surrounded by restauants, cafes and shops. There is an overlook that one can have a panoramic bay view.

Everything was open the day we were there. It was mostly just tourists in the day, but we were told the whole place comes alive at night. There are some really lovely shops. We only window shopped as it was all too expensive... More

Same as previous answer, its a busy tourist spot, so can't see the shops and tours being closed. Its their main income.
