  • Lang to take a car, not to provide an island light, the whole 50 people, if you can go with the elderly, you can only use the foot of the line, will definitely change the leg.

  • And don't come here and went to the gate say is important. Island historic remains, separating the island's urban landscape is very impressive. Sunlight Rock observation spot of the island admission is 60 Yuan and could climb higher, but is strongly recommended.
