When planning Patan, consider temple overload and the shopping opportunities. Therefore, allow a full long summer day in Patan, and start early morning. Commence with the Patan Durbar square and with the Patan Museum, and afterwards try and see as many as possible from the temples scattered around the city, which are depicted in the broshure you received when paying the 200 rupees entrance in the Durbar square.

A lunch at the restaurant back in the Patan Museum (do not miss the coffee, it?s real) will give you enough strength to dive in for another round of sightseeing. Finish only after you drop dead because of too much shopping, and be sure not to miss Patan Industrial Estate (closes around 6 pm).

Remember not to spend everything and keep 100 rupees for the taxi back in Kathmandu.

Can visit my Patan pages for more info, pics and tips.
