Visiting Tips

  • During busy summer months, there may be many tourists here - including many Chinese tourists. You may have to fight your way through the crowds.
  • The toilets here are not the best in the world. And you may have to queue up for a long time, if only one of the rooms is open. Remember to be patient, and bring toilet roll. It's best to go to the toilet first and if you have any other time then you can look at buying things, otherwise you may hold your group up. 

  • Many of the souvenir goods here can be found in other hotels for cheaper. Save your purchasing for snacks and drinks - unless you really have to buy something here!
