Pringle old town is a lovely area (don't get mixed up with the normal town) with a central tree lined stream that runs down the central (mainly!) pedestrian area. As would be expected most of the shops are touristy but there some good restaurants towards...More

Stone cobble streets ancient temples, inns, and gift shops. A personal highlight was the old (circa-1862) stone bridge spanning the Baimo River. Vistas in both directions are of a sleepy meandering river with banks girded by dense foliage. 1,000+ year-old Banyon trees also grace the...More

Pingle is written up as a great destination, but I was underwhelmed. There were no interesting buildings that I saw--just one-storey functional structures that had been turned into shops and restaurants. But the good news is that the river is lovely. I visited on a...More
