Next day, we went to the original, unrenovated east side of the old town.

This was a very residential area.

Now, most of the residents along the streets converted their first floors for the street vendors. Most of these vendors sold rice and berry wines.

A little note about our hotel, our hotel sat on the outskirts of the old town, since hotels inside the old town were taken over by one company. Speaking of monopoly, the company that took over all the hotels inside the old water town charges 4-5 times the rate of a similar Chinese hotel.
