Walking from the fort to the walled city


Recommended Posts

We took a taxi from the port to the fort with the intent of catching another taxi when we were ready to visit the walled city. From what I had read here, it didn't sound like walking was a good option. But, once we were in the fort, we could easily see the road leading to the clock tower entrance to the walled city, and it didn't look too bad, so we decided to walk it.


The walk was actually pretty easy - all level and while the sidewalk was broken up in spots, you always at least had a dirt path so you weren't walking in the road. Not once did we feel the least bit unsafe. There were locals walking (mothers and children) the same route and lots of vehicle traffic, so it's not like you're walking down deserted streets. We even passed a police station on the way. It took about 15 minutes to reach the old town. There's even a nice park on your right just before you reach old town that is worth exploring.


Hope this helps someone.
