Visited the ranee museum in the court house however is abit expensive to pay rm10 for it as the museum is extremely small. We also went to a nice cafe- commons cafe which served nice coffee with a beautiful chilled ambiance.

We met up with friends for drinks and some chill time at The Den, one of the bars at the Old Courthouse - a really laidback & cool place to hang out & catch up. Nice ambience, friendly staff ... couldn't ask for more.

The Old Courthouse is from the mid 1800s and is a classic to go visit, Huge rooms, airy porches, all the way nice. I didn't eat there, but did have a few beers there at the bar called "Lucky Charlotte"

We have had drinks and cake here several times. Lovely to be able sit outside in courtyard with small garden. Very cool place and nice atmosphere. Cakes are yummy and drinks good too. Not the cheapest place probably, but worth it.
