TRAVEL GUIDE TO WHITE ISLAND
As they say, the early-bird catches the most beautiful sunrise.
It took us a total of 5 minutes to walk from our resort to the terminal of White Island. I have noticed that Souvenir shops are present in the area. There are also a lot of food stall with small sitting area in the vicinity and the foods are cheap.
It is not crowded during our visit. I think it is primarily because of the previously finished Lanzones Festival.
The above center-left of the picture shows the terminal. That is where you will buy the tickets.

The white island will great you with a weather that will surely sting the hell out of you (depends mainly on the time of your arrival and weather).
