Quiet upscale neighborhood with some expats. It's great if you value your sleep after a day full of activities or a night out and just want to sleep in. Downtown rental will be quite noisy all night and day long. The city never sleeps.
Riverside is only 3 minutes walk away, there is a semi-private park on the river. All villas surrounding.
There is a gate and a guard.
Only 12 - 15 minutes taxi ($3 - $4 USD) to central, very convenience without the noise of the city. Taxi is always ready at the corner of the street
Food are much cheaper and more variety on this side of the city.
