5. Read Patan Museum by Götz Hagmüller

The title of this book gives little indication of the heartfelt chapters on the valley’s history, culture and architecture that it contains. Hagmüller, the head of the renovation project of the Patan Darbar into the Patan Museum, has managed to turn the geometry of architectural designs into poetic expressions.

As one of the most important books about Kathmandu, this work explains the museum, and like the museum, it endows and illuminates aspects of the architecture that abound outside the museum, in Patan Darbar Square, in the squares of Kathmandu and Bhaktapur, and all the old structures within the Valley. It is an eye-opener, an invitation to examine the heritage of this incredible Valley:

It means if you do not want to go out and spend your weekend in Kathmandu in a scholarly way, this can be the best option.

6. Eat burgers at French Bakery  

The place is known for its staggering sandwich, but it also serves some really good burgers. Its Croque Monsieur which comes with ham, cheese and bechamel sauce is awesome along with its Aussie-style burger that has grilled homemade juicy tender beef patty and comes with gerkin, mushroom, fried egg, cheese, bacon and mustard mayo.

One of the best places for all foodies to spend the weekend in Kathmandu in an exciting way…

7. Visit National Ethnographic Museum
