  • Beautiful place. Certain area can't take photo. Bamboo bicycle so interesting.
  • Great ambiance from a different era.
  • So beautiful. Cute cafe. Nice restaurant. Well laid out reproduction house and museum that gives a great feel for old colonial times. All set in cute little alleyways and through archways and tiny courtyards.
  • This reminds me of the war
  • Enjoy the music, dance and their buffet food. Reservations is recommended.
