Bus ride was pretty comfortable. It’s like those coaches you take to malaysia, just that there isn’t any entertainment services onboard… but viewing the scenery is pretty awesome ;)

A tag was issued to every single one of us onboard so they can identity us as a tour group.

They sell these dried cuttlefish onboard and it seems pretty well liked by the locals as everyone of them will buy one and open up to eat it onboard. So… we gotta try it out as well! :D
