When going to the bathroom or going to the toilet in people’s homes, they should send them some money because freshwater here has to be bought from the mainland. If you want to go to the toilet at the campsite, you should go at 3, 4 am because there are no people at that time.

The scene on the island is very beautiful but at noon will be very sunny, everyone, especially the girls should pay attention to this.
