  • This is a nice place from a distance but it's just a ordinary village that was painted bright colors to draw a crowd. I prefer unique architecture or historical significance but this had neither. I been to many villages in Europe that infused color and design but this just doesn't compare.
  • The culture village was breath taking. I recommend taking a taxi or bus to the top since it's a long a steep walk. I walked but was a little sweaty by the time I got to the top. They had little stalls for food or drinks. I had some of the best orange juice I've had in my life. The view was amazing. Never seen anything like it.
