  • MING WAI 15 Nov 2017
    Good experience, but too cold to join this water activity in Nov. The cashier counter staff is not nice and helpful at all. She had bad manner and bad service to all yellow skin.

    Very nice and professional staff, visit the cave and meet the grow worms in an exciting way. It's really an awesome experience even I feel a bit exhausted by the end!! Must go activity!!!
  • Chee Fu 30 Dec 2016
    This is a unique experience, you get a little bit cold, yes, it's true, but totally worth it!Apart from the glowworm lightning, everything is well prepared, you get to drink hot orange juice with chocolate to get warmer and the guides make you dance and everything, so fun! Everyone definitely must do this!
  • CHENG-HUA 16 May 2018
    Great experience! The team leader is also very friendly! There are towels, cold clothes and non-skid shoes. It's not so cold to wear. There is also a hot bath with a hot soup and hot baggage reception, it is worth going!
