  • The one hour tour was amazing and exciting. Our guide explained us the history and story of this floating village. 
  • Not different significant views in the dry season and the rainy season is during the dry season was charged and helpful as red construction atmosphere. Park took a tuk-tuk driver group and per capita amounts are so cheap, so he paid $ 20 per person per Park waiting to, without explanation in the ticket office at transition to private boat charters, ended. Cooperation takes communication with people at the site happened by chance, but somebody would not drop the per capita amount and you do not become a group before coming here because there how to get group rates apply. It is a tour guide and beer to drink while watching the sunset, watching the crocodile, Mansion and the snake, canoe life of illegal immigrants from Viet Nam to see beer and some food to buy, sometimes even per person $ 35, aunt to rowing in the mangrove forest. Reflecting the Sun if you also muddy the waters in the evening, it looks beautiful. Sunset watch while drinking a beer on the Lake it is because this will help the local people do not know the pros and cons of the tour is difficult to evaluate, but was beautifully intriguing information.

  • $25 pp paid for a boat trip of an hour. Next, you need to change to a smaller boat but you still need to pay $10. With the tuktuk thither also cost another 50 dollars. It is not worth it all
