  • where you can buy indigenous products

  • like woven bags and stuff like that.

  • Then we went on. This is where we stayed for the night.

  • And it's very clean and modern.

  • It's very close

  • to the ocean, you can see it from your room, the ocean.

  • There are palm trees, giving

  • the place a very

  • southern Pacific feel.

  • It's very relaxing there.

  • There is also a swimming pool. You can't swim in the ocean,

  • because there is no beach, but the

  • villa has a nice swimming pool with

  • seawater. There you can relax and take it easy.

  • to get to see the sunrise at Sanxiantai.

  • This is a nice place. You can see, there's

  • an island connected by this bridge.

  • There's a pebble beach, we had fun there.

  • And when the sun finally came up we where very excited.

  • It was cloudy, but we could

  • and took bicycles

  • to go on a ride

  • on the coastal road there.
