    Avoid a crowded bus stop and fast-food temptations by getting out through the northwest exit, walking a few steps north, and checking out El Souk for some serious Middle Eastern food.

    Very sketchy area. I really don't understand the fascination with why everyone feels compelled to hang out by the train stop.

    During rush hour, trains arrive at this station every 4-7 minutes. It's about 7-15 minutes during non-peak times.

    One of the more 'ghetto' downtown train stops. Highly recommend not loitering in front of the McDonalds!

    Do not enter the turnstile with a rolling bag, you are likely to get stuck (and hurt).
