  • I turned at the doorstep because of their race dependant pricing. I'm well aware that this is common in thailand, but I just can't support that kind of businesses. Therefore I choose to boycott, and I wouldn't encourage anyone to visit this place.
  • Amazing but too much tourists... Lucky you if you can take a picture without anyone on !
  • Nice place to walk and see the sights
