    Rent a car with my daughter! Very good vantage point, was remarkably Tokyu resort hotel is across the sea on a beautiful coral reef. It was a great location. I don't know how I managed, however, has long hesitated to climb to the top, and put the nest on the steps of the gazebo at a few locations, adult Palms around a big Spider Web I came through in the spider's Web, and went up to the top. Was littered with garbage of drink but I think that was a problem of moral of the tourists on the observation deck is a little disappointing.
