In its Sunday market opening at a dawn and working in the forenoon, inhabitants of all blizkoraspolozhenny villages side by side trade, forgetting about the distinctions caused by their ethnic origin.

Two local hotels such as a hostel – one on the main street (look for the index in English), and another in 75 m are more left, on the road conducting on the South, to fields – do poor reminiscence. As compensation for the night spent in discomfortable aspects the picturesque human mosaic – ladies the khan will serve in the headdresses decorated with silver beads, буланы with heavy earrings in ears and big black turbans, inhabitants of the remote mountain small villages in black clothes and with starenky sawn-off shotguns… Most of all, vobshchy, in this raznoliky weight, will be the Thais buying in the market rolls of handicraft paper and саронги. It is necessary to examine and Menkhun. Its main sights are a dilapidated monastery of the nineteenth century with the pavilion constructed in style of octagonal Baytsyaz-otin in Tszinchzhen, and the pagoda which has hidden in a bamboo jackpot on blizkoraspolozhenny hills.
