This was an excellent experience. We selected a private tour. Our wonderful guide and our driver picked us up from our hotel and provided an informative experience of each destination. The Big Buddha was truly spectacular and is not to be missed. We had several opportunities to shop in spots we would not have found ourselves. It was so nice to travel around with the driving taken care of.
Must Do
