it's worth the drive to get there. Once you are there, you will be led through the sights, can cycle through the beautiful countryside and be rowed down the river - the most gorgeous views and peaceful, lovely experience

Famous for pocket-picker, fraud, being invited with insistences. Pagoda management team had not performed well their duties to protect tourists, manage store-keepers. This place need to be improved a lot to attract foreign tourists.
