Tucked away in the China Town sois of Warorot Market, there are all sorts of colourful shops selling a variety of goodies such as Lanna costumes, plastic flowers, fabric and gold. One particular shop, Nai99 has been open for years selling a kaleidoscope of imported materials, accessories and home décor, mainly from Nepal. However, a gem can be found up a small hidden stairway made of creaky timber in the back of the shop that leads to Thamel coffee. You will feel as though you are sitting in Pokhara (just a difference of a few dozen degrees in temperature), surrounded by Himalayan fabrics and art, as you sip coffees, smoothies, teas and beers while you take bites of delicious cakes and other goodies. Interestingly, most of the clientele are tourists, with a good mix of backpackers and Chinese.
