We love the old architecture and that they are maintaining it, however sad that it has become so touristy and being ruined by having a souvenir, tailor, leather or t-shirt/ dress shop everywhere. Wish they could keep it more authentic. It was really busy with bus loads of tourists coming in. Maybe try going on a weekday.
The full moon festival was on which was so lovely with a boat trip and letting paper lanterns go on the river but hope they are cleaning it all up after!
In summary it’s definitely worth going but sad to say that it’s no longer the lovely authentic experience.. hope they can improve that for the future!
