I'm terrified of rats but thought this was a must see attraction. The rats are very small and don't bother people at all. You just can't believe your eyes with so many rats everywhere. Not too far from other attractions.

Did not like and feel the rats all around me, but maybe it is interesting to see, the socks that you wear was way to thin and I felt the rat poo under my feet.

We arrived in early morning and while bowls of milk and food were set out already we were told that more rats can be seen in the afternoon. Be sure and view the area where the rat food is prepared / cooked in very large pots.
