The King Solomon had some special features - the most amazing is the cable car which you can use to go up and down to and from your room. The pool looked inviting although I never got to try it. I did go to the buffet dinner provided during the cultural show, which I enjoyed. There was free wi-fi in the restaurant and lobby areas. Staff were usually pleasant and responsive. The location was convenient. Music from the club next door could be loud on weekend evenings. I liked the King Solomon because it had character.

... so I had a bit of high expectations. The first stop was Bornegie Beach. There are supposedly two shipwrecks here. I only found one. The first wreck was a Japanese war ship and not far from the shore. This wreck was unreal. I was loving it and thought to myself if my whole day could go on like this, I would have one of the best days of my life. I have swam shipwrecks before, but not from World War 2. I have been to Pearl Harbor, ...
