City streets are crowded and colourful. Motorbikes frequently take to the footpath if the roads are too busy, so pedestrians always have to keep watch. In addition, most shops extend their displays out onto the footpath, and the shop owner can often be seen sitting outside as well.

    From a passing bus, it is often difficult to tell just what sort of store it is, because some of them seem to sell everything from gas rings and toilet fittings to clothing and garden statuary.
