The park itself is quite an expensive place to visit. It is well developed with loads of facilities.

They give you a route to follow at the information centre, which involves taking buses and ferries or walking along boardwalks or well-defined paths. You can eat at different food vendors throughout the park in designated areas, however they are also quite expensive, so it is worth packing your own lunch in a backpack.

There are a few different bus stops along the main highway and you can either purchase a ticket to get around from one of the attendants at the bus stop or otherwise you can book them online in advance. Sometimes you can also buy the ticket on the bus, but check the timetables here as to when the buses are coming through to help you get around.
