The trip there is just good for the soul. The culture of the people is very different than most have experienced. They feel gratitude and always very friendly which will entice you to feel the same way. From the plane ride there to the plane ride back, the entire trip is just full of fun moments and adventures as well as playfulness. There is a vast amount of scenery and attractions that just bring you peace of mind. A lot of people frequent to those attractions and it’s for good reason.
