    When you explored Red sand dune, white sand dune, fairy stream, poshanu cham tower, how long did you spend there? 3 hours or 6 hours? Because i need to book jeep trip but i don’t know how long to spend.

  9. QiQi Says:

    Hi, I spent alot time at white sand dune..we departed around 430am if not mistaken because we want to catch the sun rise..however we not able to catch the sunrise as cloudy day..but we did enjoy sitting on the sand and looking on the sky! Around 8 30 am we went for breakfast. Then we went to red sand (erm..a quick visit here cause vy crowded and alot people selling things) After that, we went to fishing village, then we went to poshanu cham tower. Around 11am, we went to fairy stream and end around 12pm. So actually is consider half day tour~
