Munich: Marienplatz (Part 2)

I was lucky there was carnival during that time in Marienplatz which was bustling with tourists and locals alike.
Somehow there was an event which motivated most of the locals to put on their traditional attires

Back to the town area, the atmosphere was really European with the al-fresco dining areas and bistros

Don't forget to tour the souvenir shops along the streets as well; although the prices are not cheap (I can tell you, due to our conversion rates:(

I really enjoyed shopping around here....despite the lower margin of damage done..haha!!
But I liked Munich (forget about the attitude of the people!)
