A charming riverside stroll

What we say: 4.5 stars

Many of the buildings are more than a century old, and while they could use a good restoration, they possess a definite aged charm. Some buildings are built of teak and show Chinese, Vietnamese and Thai architectural influences, while others feature French-style shutters and second-floor balconies.

Although the buildings are indeed lovely, most of the charm comes from the locals who dwell in them; hole-in-the-wall noodle shops, ice cream parlours, bakeries, gem dealers, herb shops and laidback cafes with riverside verandas can all be found tucked into the old streets.
