Terrible concept!
May 2016 • Solo
I was riding my bike and realised that there's a 4/5 star rating spot so I decided to see what's going on with this trail. It disappointed me in so many ways. First of all there were too many Chinese tourists and secondly, I can't agree with the concept of this trail where the government relocated the aboriginals from the border close to Vietnam and China to here. What I see these aboriginals do is to entertain the Chinese tourists while the aboriginals are treated like animals. What the tour guide told the people in Chinese is that these people cannot assimilate themselves in the modern society and couldn't find a proper job that's why now they are displayed as animals for the tourists. Tour guides ask the tourists to give money to the aboriginals. It's absolutely disgusting to see the way that their traditional way of life is destroyed while now they are treated like animals and Chinese are trained to give pity to them instead of educating them the importance of cultural conservation or from the perspective of understanding. Horrible place!

Poor show

Should of realised this was not a good place to go when other passengers started to argue with the tour guide about a better place to go, elsewhere! This place may be good for a short time for children but not good for adults.

It is a good idea to wear good shoes with a grip as stairs can be slippery.There is a very small show and display of drumming and bare foot walking over hot coals. in order to get to the exit you have to pass shops! suggest show improvements !

Good learning but place can be upgraded

It is in fact interesting and very good to learn about an ancient civilization. However, the place can be better upgraded and the show can be even better especially the show of courage by stepping on fire and glass. And definitely not suitable for children if it is on a rainy day because the floor is slippery (happened to be there when it was drizzling)

Interesting facts to learn regarding ancient civilization in the beginning. Not so well done but something to pass the time. Show at the end is not professionally done and suddenly in the middle, there's a store with modern products! I found that weird. Just pass time if absolutely nothing to do.

Waste of time
Apr 2014 • Friends
The best part of the Totem Ancient Trail was the museum of artifacts in the very beginning, but there were so many groups going through that comfortably viewing the artifacts was near impossible. Everything after that was a pure waste of time. Attraction is poor at best, but my experience after the artifacts was so bad that I rated it terrible. I do not recommend this attraction!
