Take a taxi, the paths to walk there from the rest of the
city are long and confusing and pass areas which are less
safe. Always use a hire taxis a car with driver rather
than use public transport.

to 20 minutes depending on traffic and exactly where you are
starting from and your destinations. Remember to
negotiate with your taxi driver before departing, or ask
your hotel concierge to assist with this.
