  • Incredible weekend getaway for the locals and a whole package experience for the travellers. Scenic walks along the creek and the old streets with countless food options are worth the second visit. Wouldn't advice if it's rainy though
  • Very cool! This is a very vibrant and lively place. The old buildings create a nice atmosphere, and all of the food stalls and shops are great. I was able to try a lot of different traditional food, and I'm happy I visited.
  • So many food and beverages, and it also has an ancient view from the past. Nice place for rapid travelling.
