+ Nice dirt roads and beautiful nature. Lot’s of Bambao trees.
To think about: Some of the main roads are not that nice to bike along because they are damaged by tourism. And by that we mean kids running after you, shouting for candy and trying to grab you, your bike or your panniers while you pass the.
Some dirt roads might flood during rain season which is August- September.
