Okay i suppose, you wont feel like you missed out if you didnt walk along here. It was so busy so maybe i just didnt appreciate it.

Very nice walk through the bambou forest. It was pretty packed but still we really enjoyed the walk. Manageable with baby stroller, pavement is flat but it can be hard to push at the beginning.

Beautiful spot, but a ton of tourists spanning the width of the path to take pictures made it a rather frustrating place to visit.

Yet another very crowded tourist sight, but worth visiting. The pathway through the bamboo grove is very wide with a fence either side so you very much feel that you are looking across into the bamboo rather than being able to walk through it. This is a little disappointing compared with other woods and forests but inevitable considering the huge visitor numbers. Still interesting to see as it's so unusual.
