Hafiz is a national treasure, period. I joined his firefly tour and it was an eye opening experience, even for a local. He was passionate about fireflies and that is important for the conservation of the mangrove forest nearby. Highly recommended.

ツアーの前の説明でガイドのおじさんが、「蛍とコミュニケーションがとれるので蛍を集めることができる」と豪語していて、本当か?と思っていたが本当に蛍が集まってきたのにはびっくりした。 チュラティンに行くなら一見の価値あり。
