      Hi Agness! The best time to explore in between the month of Feb and April. During this time not too hot and so best to move around. To attend many festivals, not a bad idea to visit in Aug/Sep as well.

    I would say these tips are spot on! We were just there a about a month ago and I loved the city so much. Three days was not enough. I hope to go back again but with more money since we’re traveling asia on a budget hahah. Despite having many free things, it was a bit expensive and people need to come prepared. Loved everything about it though!
