The city has good and bad things i must say

good things:
- nice location near the beach
- lots of things to do
- hot guys
- relaxed environment

bad things
- it's too damn expensive
- traffic is awful
- everyone is trying to cheat tourists
- too many kosher restaurants

It's one of the most expensive cities in the world actually

which is $10 AU

I know that, but if you want tourists to come there
you need to make non-kosher restaurants more visible
because at the moment it's like a guessing game.

Cheese and dairy products in general are very important ingredients in food for most of the
world population, so if you take it out of the menu there isn't much left
to eat. Opposite problem for breakfast when you can't find sausages, bacon or meat in most
of the hotels/restaurants
