Patan, Nepal: The Ultimate 1 and 2 Day Itinerary, Patan, Nepal (B)

The first time I went to Nepal, I really dragged my feet about going to Patan. In my mind, it was too far away to go for just one day, but it wasn’t far enough to warrant switching hotels. On my second visit to Nepal, I was invited to Patan to watch a friend DJ and realized that it’s only a quick 20 minute drive by cab ($5.00 at most). You can also take a local bus for $0.20, but it’s a little hard to figure out if you’re new to the area.

Once I realized how close Patan was, it became my favorite spot to go on a whim. Now, I even meet friends for a quick cup of coffee the way I would meet someone in Manhattan when I lived in Brooklyn. My biggest advice is don’t overthink visiting Patan. It really is so simple to get there. Now that I frequent this little city so often, it made sense to write up an itinerary. For me, Patan is a great place to do non-touristy stuff.
