Local life experience and the GIGANTIC Dragon Tower!

Me and my colleague went on the weekend. We watch them make coconut sugar that is my first time to see it. The train market is amazing, there are a lot of local food. The highlight is the dragon tower we went up 17 floor and the view up there is very worth to see!

note: please wear comfortable shoes

I enjoyed the tour and the guide was very helpful and has knowledge about the places.
