If you have Checheng station on your tour itinerary, then, I suggest to take the train from here to get there. The kids enjoy train rides.

There is a designated area for cycling. Thus it is safe from bigger vehicles on the road. When I was there, the sun was... More

Loved the old little train station. There's a bubble tea shop next to it that sold bubble tea you could take away in a kitty bottle that was really cute! Great place to get off and stretch your legs.
