JENNY FOEI L
, Mar 2017
Our guide was nice young and educated well. His behavior and sense were modern and understanding. He spoke good English and took us to the island by the cross ferry, where all cars and motorbikes went on. We took our bikes and cycled to the other end of island where we had lunch. On the way in hot sunny weather, we stopped for sugarcane juice treated by the guide and visited some farmers on the way. We ate unwashed tomatoes.... this wasn't smart of us, cause I had influenza fever diarrhea and everything else slowly after. It is best if they don't let tourists try out their local things that may not be hygienic. As for the silk factory, it was a nice tour. Detailed and nice environment to explore more of the place. Lastly, we had a nice lunch and the guide was very helpful. He made very nice artistic photos of us and videos and send it to us at end. We loved his style and initiative making secret recordings of us. They were nice! The cycle route was a bit too long in such hot weather. Luckily we didn't have to return on the bikes again to the ferry. When the tuktuk brought us to the next destination of our own program, he showed his dissatisfaction to us on the money we paid him additionally. The tour supposed to be 1 day tour and the day wasn't ended yet, but the guide left us already and the tuktuk driver was alone with us and trying to further rip us off. We didn't like that, so we called the guide to talk to him and it was sorted. That was not a pleasant moment.
