Sights in the City.
There are several casinos, shopping malls, and exciting night life. There is no beach near the city, even though you are looking at the sea. Cultural and historic sites like Panama Viejo (the ruins), Casco Viejo (Old Town), Amador Causeway (shops, places to eat, walk, cafes), the Panama Canal of course. Dinner at Las Tinajas and breakfast at El Trapiche are almost required for typical food, and if you're into desserts, visit Manolo's Churros, for some good, fresh, hot churros. Experience dim sum (chinese breakfast) at Palacio Lung Fung.
