  • Dangerous place. Do not go there if you are not local. Our Uber driver helped us when a local was following us. We decided to turn back and go home. The driver said it was a good decision.
  • very diffent & inspiring to other seightseeing locations
  • On weekends, this place really comes to life, with families renting out boats to ride through the waterways, listening to roving bands, and enjoying food and drinks from vendors who float by. It's worth doing one's homework on the official boat rental rates beforehand, as some less reputable guides will charge double to triple the normal price, if you don't know better. Best done as a medium to large group activity.
  • Very crowded and busy
  • Mega Floating
