  • Our Guide had enormous hurry, giving us the info on the posters could hardly read. His English was almost not to be mean and he spoke very fast. He was always within a minute finished his piece of information. If we read the posters, he was already on the other hand, things to explain to the other people who were on tour. After 2 x to have asked whether he wanted to do, the effort to no longer taken to hear and learn something from him. Our time taken to read it all. He then came back and still has some things. The casting of the silver in a mold, was very nice to see. We were in a 25-minute weather outside. We had a discount coupon of 5 ringgit, but was altogether still too expensive for what we have seen.
