  • Been there twice. It's ok not a fantastic place. Travelling there is really bad as roads are awful. Not much there to see to be honest. After couple of hours nothing there to see. Restaurants also not...  more »
  • Imagine an underground salt city? Then you should go here. At the bottom right of the wall and the construction of the sand. Hunt there desk lamps of salt, they say, it is useful!

  • 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.
