  • - a nice place for photos - near the station where you get boats to get you to the village across the river - lots of nearby restaurants and souvenir shops - visited February 2017  more »
  • Interesting sculpture for a few photographs. But beside that there is not much to do around. Hot square without trees, and some nice views of the river and village on stilts.  more »
  • I wasn't sure what meaning of the monument that monument is. Are in place, water taxi has held up well.
