its nice! i went there tonight.

clothes wise i think its nicer, of cost not as cheap as wufenpu, but more concise.

food, less variety, but suitable to eat. follow the crowd... haha... eat wat u like. =D

2 way oso can down to 1k..tat mean they hike the price till veri high
i got 1 encounter during last trip wif 2 frds
we were at kenting,wan to go back to checheng,the driver quote us $800
den i reject,he lower till $500,i still reject,den i took cab back,meter show $650
the diff was between $150 -$300

the price guide is bluff ppl wan..if u can bargain,tat mean they got hike up the price....standard price given by the govt can b change wan
