I liked the beautiful temples all over the city ! Best to rent ( and negotiate a good price with the Taxi- tuk tuks ) They charge US$ 10 per hour which becomes the most expensive thing on my trip here. Food was mostly hot bowls of noodles ( for hygiene purposes ) the restaurants do overcharge for simple Fried Rice ( about US$ 5 which has nothing inside !) Also the Thai Papaya Salad was too spicy - do tell them you cannot eat spicy food (costs about US$ 7 ) Many restaurants offer free iced tea drinks ( seemed safe enough for me - didn't get food-poisoning .) There's a new " Swensen Ice- cream " & " Pizza Hut " ( or similar with a different name ) in the heart of the city - if you're looking for something Western . Many colonial French houses including the Carol Cassidy Laotian Weaving atelier , housed in an old French villa ! A nice small laid-back city - 3 - 4 days should be quite enough to explore everything .
