Overall Guide : It's an enjoyable place, full of fun and talented people, just that we don't have connection to make our dreams into reality.

Overall Guide : It is a good but expensive place to stay. Although the indigenous inhabitants make the stay of visiting in-dwellers less-conducive for habitation as a result of the ugly attitude they exhibit. A change of modus for good will make things... more move more smoothly.
