  • The island's advice goes in the morning, because the exhibition area and the art museum about 5-6 will be closed, it is possible to arrange a full day of travel, very leisurely, planning a good island, advice to rent a bicycle, but please measure the strength of the majority of the flat road. If the way of walking and bus is not very well controlled. Be sure to go to the Rich Island Museum, it's fun, and there's no enemy sea side!
