Was hesitant to take this tour since we had walked the city that morning. Streets are packed with motorcycles going in every direction and no stop signals or signs.
Guide was excellent- He had good knowledge of city , history and best place for tea.
highlight was going to art school.

The guide was a nice guy though.
