    The temple was nice the service good. But what made this a special place to go was the zen-meditation in the morning, and the evening walks in the night in the vaste temple district that this temple is part of. The building where the rooms...More

    lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The
    area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and

    Book though email, pay upon arrival. You can pay by cash or card if you'd like; although I think cash is easier on them, they do have a card reader. You will need to provide information including your flight number, passport... More
