Beautiful temples, beautiful old houses, beautiful old cars. Delicious food, delicious fresh fruit shakes. Spectacular night market of paper lanterns, silver jewellery, silk clothing, jade Buddha statues, lacquer paintings, hill-tribe coffee beans, going on forever. Peaceful monks, quiet traffic, relaxed market sellers, no pestering from tuk-tuk drivers. Cheap, comfortable, characterful, calm.
The pearl of the orient.
