Solo travel experience

I didn’t feel like a place for solo travelers, a bit expensive for what offers to you. It’s all about money, people are not friendly as we think. The food is all about lemon grass, all have this flavor or curry.

Solo travel experience

I was volunteering in a hotel for 12 days. I didn’t really enjoy the working experience but I loved the island, there is so much to see! I also didn’t go to the parties as much as I wanted to because I travel as a backpacker and therefore I have a low budget.
