    Great Place to Stay
    Kathmandu has a number of different areas and I would suggest you consider carefully where you want to stay and I will tell you what a few of them have to offer For Families and business Lalitpur is a relatively upmarket area quite new and mostly has pavements for American readers , sidewalks For people interested in the spiritual side of things Boudha with the Stupa etc is a lovely location. For lovely views staying around Swayambhanath ( Monkey Temple ) gives you a chance of seeing some mountains I though like most people chose Thamel because of the buzz it has the bars , the trekking shops , the restaurants . It’s busy but it’s still safe and well worth it in my mind.
