Your rickshaw seat offers you the perfect space to do a bit of window-shopping along the way! Hop off your rickshaw and stroll through Asan, a popular vegetable and spice market and the oldest in Kathmandu, and arrive at Durbar Square, filled with centuries-old temples, palaces and shrines that are sure to delight you the square, find a spot on a bench to people-watch, or hang out in one of the hippie-era pie shops on Freak Street. Sip some warm chai tea or, if you’re feeling bold, sample fiery Aila (a local Newari whiskey) at one of the local food stalls (own expense).
There’s never a dull moment in this area. After making some good memories here, hop back on the rickshaw for your return ride to Thamel. By the end of your tour, you’ll surely agree that a rickshaw is the best way to experience Kathmandu’s lively nightlife!
