It’s worth to go there but am sad that people show less respect and throw their rubbish everywhere. Many things are destroyed and lay around. No care is taken by responsibles.

Interesting insight into the terrible things that people do to each other. It's free too! Maybe charge a bit and improve the experience? Not one for kids...

You will see tiger cages in which prisoners were kept, different ways of torturing and also a tunnel prisoners dug to escape the prison. However, you don’t need more than 30 minutes to see everything. We combined our visit here with the Hon Thom Cable...More
