TO VISIT SOME OF THE TEMPLES YOU NEED AT LEAST SIX HOURS AND YOU NEED TO RENT THE TUK TUK FOR WHOLE DAY THAT WILL COST YOU TWENTY DOLLARS. YOU NEED TO CLIMB UP AND DOWN UNDER THE HEAT OF THE SUN AND THE WEATHER IS REALLY HUMID THAT DRAIN YOUR. BODY AND YOU NEED TO DRINK A LOT OF WATER TO HYDRATE YOUR BODY.
