Nan ties has beautiful grounds to sit and relax or explore. The museum is a must see. The restaurant food is absolutely delicious, and reasonably priced. Well worth a visit.

Make sure you wear shoes you can kick off, as there are no shoes allowed in the Pagoda or temple prayer rooms, also wear something knee length and covered shoulders.

The food tasted horrible and over priced. I felt like I stepped into a third world food market, they keep pestering you to try and buy their food. Everywhere you go, you can see price tags everywhere. They sell everything from tombstones to fake jades.
