A little bit to expensive for what has to offer. We were there at the opening hour and saw the chief and all the others inhabitants of the village arrving in the pick-up truck form the city. It spoiled all the wander of it.

A typically predictable holiday entertainment which reminded me of holiday camp or cheap hotels abroad style of evening shows. The young dancers were noisily enthusiastic and of course dragged people out to make fun of them to entertain the crowd. Yawn.
