I was stayed at Hong Peng Hotel at Chulia Street with affordable prices and good accommodation. At night, along the street you can see the people selling street food. Good to try local food.

Choose a not so steamy day to wander around this beautiful old part of town and enjoy the buildings, especially the Fire Station.
