Where can you get freshly brewed, preservative-free beer for 25 cents? Drink it on the street atop tiny stools amongst hundreds of cheerful locals and travelers? Wander the narrow lanes through a flurry of sights and smells and sounds with an alarmingly high chance of getting run over by a motorbike?
We enjoyed this small city much more than we were expecting to. We were enchanted by its energy, tantalized by its flavors, and embraced by its open arms. And we’re looking forward to discovering how the rest of the country stacks up.
