... on for festivals. On its own, it is imposing enough but it is also surrounded by parade grounds, gardens and 14 temples that claim 72 acres of the city. This home of the dwindling royal family was built between 1897 and 1912 on the site of a wooden palace destroyed by fire.

We were all bunking down in the same cabin, a 3a cabin which is basically 3 bunks high on both sides of the cabin. It's pretty basic, but it's comfortable, there is a window and electric points to charge phones and stuff. My favourite spot is the top bunk, which I had! Whoop.
