It was a very relaxing but informative and entertaining bamboo raft trip. Singing guides and beautiful landscape along with the history of the area make for an enjoyable day.

First it’s a beautiful place. The ride on the river is about 1 hour and it’s so relaxing! But that’s it! There are nothing else interesting to see there. Now that you know that, just decide what you want to do.
