... our new good tradition. First we go to the local market to buy some sweets and fruits to give to monks. This market is very alive and colorful with a big variety of foods. We try a local dish, Bak-kut-teh, a pig dark soup, hot and spicy. Perfect option for breakfast.

Lovely exotic style layout. Fabulous collection of decorative antiques. Wooden windows and doors. Nice outdoor restaurant. Location OK for getting to the Historical park. Moto hire for 250b a day well worth it.
