The best way to explore everything the city has to offer is by racking through the old streets lined with museums, buildings and a plethora of attractions that entertain the travellers.


Pop in at one of the few shopping malls for high-end brands or go to the local market – especially on the weekend – if you are looking to strike the best bargain. At one of the boutique shops, you can shop for souvenirs and other local products.

For the night owl…

Owing to the fact that the town isn’t exactly what you call a tourist destination, there are only a few bars, night clubs and beer bars. However, there are several night-shows you might find interesting.


Restaurants range from expensive to budget-friendly – so money won’t be an issue if you’ve set out your heart on sampling Thai food.
