Peaceful and tranquil yes, but for me not much else. There is a huge display of treasures and artefacts to see in the museum, but note there are few if any descriptions in English.

This place is exactly what you would have in mind. It's a plethora of interesting and exciting buys. You look at a vase and wonder how old it is. You see an abacus and wonder who it belonged to. An antique ornament catches your eye and you wonder how much it's really worth! There were so many different items, from... More
