It so nice to climb the tower. The air that goes inside the tower is so refreshing. And it gives unexplainable feeling to climb the historical place.

Kayang-kaya naman lakarin! I would suggest you walk it morning or afternoon cause the sun can be very strong. Make sure do drop by the okoy shop cause it’s life changing. Night time, you should see the Dancing Fountain too... More
