  • Amazing place with beautiful scenery, we got a ticket at the station for the bus there are 3 different routes, we got the red one. The best stop for sure was the cable car you can go up and enjoy the view. There is also a boat at the same stop. Beyond there are many stops were you can enjoy the beautiful view!
  • Must see scenic location. We decided to manually bike around to check it out. It was about 3 hours including many stops. If doing electric bike you can do it in 2 hours. Many outlook points and small little shops. If biking be careful of passing cars.
