  • I like the way it is served as an art precinct, where local talents can hold exhibitions, selling their goods etc. It's such a unique and beautiful old building in an octagonal shape. It is interesting to note that outside and nearby of the building is a famous hangout bar areas for LGBT communities. Making this while area even more colorful and eclectic.
  • Historical place. But not really interesting to go now. It is too much commercialized. I remember, there were more historical things few years ago. So it was more like museum. But now it is just some shop honestly.
