We were picked up on time and then drove to the Sunrise Spot. It was an incredible sunrise. That was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Then there was a brief stop at a local market. Our guide stopped for us every now and then when we wanted to take photos and responded to our every need. After the market it went to the temple and the rice terraces. The temple was great because we were there before the crowds so early in the morning and could watch the locals perform their rituals. The rice terraces afterwards were ok. It's totally overcrowded and bloggers are running around posing in the rice field. The monkey forest is more like a zoo, you don't necessarily have to have lived it. But rounded off the day.

The tour was fantastic, I tried the swing above the rice terrace, it was amasing. And the rest sights were also interesting. Gus Tika is an excellent tourguide, he is flexible and patient. He took me some pics, too. I recommand he and this tour.
