There's audio commentary in 8 languages, helping travellers learn about the great city.
Let your hair down in the evening at the Red Zone bar. Opened in 1995, this bar turned club has a different theme each night, ranging from disco to salsa to house.

It's open until 3am and all ages can be found here depending on the night's theme.
