Combine this museum with balloon flight and jeep safari. Seek the nearby hotel to relax for a swim. We did also the green and red tour to see all top sights of the region. Took us 4 days.

When you visit the museum everything is carefully arranged. There are broad concrete paths and stairs everywhere. It is easy to forget that the original residents didn't have these advantages. Most of their stairs are eroded away but you can still see some. It was...More

No, not in the centre of town but a pleasant walk of about 10 minutes. Wonderful place to walk around and worth paying a little extra to see the Dark Church. A very beautiful place and do not miss it
