Rich Plaza Hotel
222-8188, FAX 227-3900. Central location. Rooms are lovely. Breakfast included. Not gay, so be discreet. Located in a charming, older section of the city. In the evening, exit the hotel, turn right, cross the main road and enter the lantern-strung alley opposite. This will lead you into a world of temples, shops, and homes from yesteryear. At the end of the alley, turn left to discover the KTC Tea Dealer (228-4682) whose shop has been in business since 1868, or turn right, cross the next main road and look on the right side of the lane for the Si Mi Na Teng Hua barber shop (222-5737) packed with incredible anthropomorphic folk art made by the barber (not to mention his mini-zoo and rock collection!).
