Located within sighted view of the streetcar stop, the foot bath is a must try if you are in the area. The locals do it too. If you plan to try it, do make sure you can roll up your pants and have a small...More

The monkeys look pretty miserable walking around on concrete and folks throwing random food at 'em, which most likely isn't too good for their digestive system to be eating processed food. All in all, not worth the visit just to be passive in not supporting...More
