Walking through the prison, i felt a bit bored as it is large but a bit same model on the past war in vision. Not very attractive to the children

Went here as part of a three hour excursion where we also toured a pepper farm (tons of them some are more interactive than others). The Prison is a pretty somber experience. You are grateful at certain points that the mannequins/statues aren't so lifelike, otherwise...More

Our Driver (Nam) from the Salinda Resort surprised us with this stop and it was very interesting! Although it was a brief stop we found it very educational.

Hi? Hard to answer your question. If he/she isn't walking much then the island is good. Distances aren't that big depending on where you stay and the taxi is pretty cheap. The island is pretty "flat". The paving/curbs... More
