Just west of the market, the town's central square lights up like a wonderland at night, with hanging Christmas lights on the trees and faux electric fireworks atop poles around a central temple area and a lit-up Buddha of Compassion. The square is a good place to strike up a friendly conversation with locals. Grab a lawn chair at one of the many coffee bars serving the sweet local gelatin called che, and say "Chao chi/em/anh" to the person sitting nearest you.
