There is not a baggage storage.
What is the cost of bike rental...I understand it is inexpensive. Are rentals for a specific period, or the day?

Yeah it wasn't too expensive ~ 45 Yuan each. We got two tandem bikes and we had them as long as we wanted. At the gate we went to we bypassed the closest bike rental and walked maybe 200 yds to a second one. The bikes... More
