first of all you take transport to the pier for the boat on a road which can only be described as a motorcross track. on arrival you are rushed to the counter to pay $20 for the boat trip without being told anything about the trip.
once you get on the boat you are told about the school on the river and how tourists are supposed to buy rice for the local school... on arrival to the floating market you realise it is not actually a market just a shop that sells rice, the rice is price at $35 for 20kgs of rice (expensive for any part of the world). the tour guide trys to claim that 45% of the money gos to the community but it is very apparant it does not.
other than the school and this shop there is virtually nothing else to see. the tour guide asked for a tip for him and the driver, and i burst out laughing.
Blatently a tourist trap, do not waste the effort on this attraction it really is dissapointing.
