However when passing other trains we started appreciating our carriage compared to the three bunk on one side carriages and carriages with wood ...
... 160;Here, I was able to hike the three hundred or so steps up to the pagoda on the top of the island. I enjoyed the stunning view of all the boats in the bay, and then hiked back down to join Tony on the beach.
