I'm glad I could go around with the locals in a short time. I walk a lot more than I expected. Thanks to that, Tipon was taken a closer look. There was almost no English. I could understand part of it with the translation app. I wanted to go to Pikiryakuta, but only the gate. On the way back, I was relieved that the locals came to the bus terminal.

Very satisfied. Mr. Omar Salas is a very good guide.
