The dinner location could be better. The access path and location wasn’t the best we imagined. Food was also ok.

This tour was perfect!!! The driver and guide gave us best experience possible and at the last stop we were lucky enough to see a leopard due to the expertise and intuition of our fantastic guide Samahan. The intimate romantic beach BBQ couldn’t have been better with the lovely backdrop of a full moon
