Not a "sanctuary" as others mentioned. Interesting to browse but I felt like I was being taken for a ride. I wouldn't go out of my way but if you're passing by then check it out.

Hidden down an alleyway on the edge of the old town, cosy handicrafts centre with little library attached. Really nice selection of local goods incl coffee, honey, jewelry, pottery, clothes etc. Centre supports local producers, who get all of the profits.

If u looking great escape from lousy car/motorcycle/traffic jam/ stress work and need a quite while wonderful place to go then this is the perfect place to escape.

Craft center selling minority groups for fair prices and paying wages. Center also provides free library for local community to learn English and to improve native tongue language reading. Supported through purchases, donations, and volunteer/internship experiences. Very supportive environment.
