Many places to eat, shop, take pictures, stroll at your pace. None of the merchants where pushy at storefronts. Look around before settling on one place to buy; many shops sell similar items. At night the place really takes on it known charm with all the lanterns. You have to take a lantern boat ride to the other side, even more places to snack, eat and shop. Wonderful experience during our visit. Will definitely go again!!
Beautiful town. Felt like time was frozen here and you can still walk the streets of hundreds years ago. Cultured, beautiful, peaceful and with the friendly hospitality of locals. One of a kind place. Definitely come back as usual.
