To be honest, we are quite skeptical about visiting this place so close to Christmastime because we thought it would be extremely crowded with people. However, when we visited on a weekday afternoon (Tuesday) there wasn't much of a crowd at all! Most shops were closed, but there were still enough things to see and do here if you're into Christmas celebrations like us!
