Despite the ubiquity of selfie sticks and the leashed-kimono-wearing-monkey standing before an applauding audience, this place was actually quite beautiful. It did have a bit of a Sovereign Hill vibe, which kind of gave it a tacky touristy atmosphere (kind of like when you are forced to go on a sovereign hill excursion for the sixth time because your teachers don’t know what else to with you) Read about my previous experience here
