  • Nice place. Guides provide interesting information. Souvenirs are cheaper at the shops as you enter the tourist attraction ie furthest away from the resort. (You will see salt lamps in shops before yiu arreive at the attraction...there are the cheapest). Alphabet letters carved in salt are 4 for 100 and at the mine they are 1 for 50.
  • My first ever trip.., can't forget ... Love the place
  • Full of nasty perves. Better take your women in full burka's in a place like this. These dogs have no shame.
  • It is a Nicke place. I recomend IT.
