        Decent rooms, reasonable sized pool. The best facility is the nice Terrace Bar/Restaurant with great views of sunset and not so bad food menu

Several drivers clamoured for our business, all offering to take us out West to Maubara, a few hours' drive for $3 per person. With hindsight I remember locals laughing at our choice in Microlet. They may have also just been laughing at our foreignness and bemusement. It very rickety and struggled with the ...

There were also lots of clothes and shoes for sale, some that looked like they were from Vinnies (second hand) and others new with labels, but nothing in our size. There were some ancient people selling at the market. They were all very pleased to be acknowledged and beamed back at us with beetlenut red smiles showing blackened teeth destroyed by lime. The ground in the market was stained red by the beetlenut spit and you had to be a ...
