2. Nakara Jardin Bistro and Salon de The Restaurant
This is a really beautiful tea house / restaurant with a lovely garden by the Ping River. The setting is simply so lovely and peaceful and wonderful place to enjoy the cakes, pastry and other dishes by Le Cordon Bleu trained chef. My favourite spot is to sit by the weeping willow and watch the boats go by.
