We stayed at this hotel. Here is the view out front by day. Even with not much going on, it is spectacular for the sheer volume of activity. The reason I traveled when I did and stayed as long is because National Day was coming. The few days I was there prior to the beginning of this week long holiday allowed me to appreciate the increase enormous increase in the number of people on the sidewalk. Really, you have never seen anything like it in the U.S.(Even in NYC).
