Taking the boat tour by long-tailed boat in the evening till dusk to see fireflies is recommended for the cool temperature after heat of the daytime. As climate change and aggressive human activities, there is less fireflies on the trees along the canal while riding...More

Horrible $133 usd for a bad polluted river ride with same souvenirs in every store, food don’t seem clean, and very expensive 5$ for a beer, any souvenirs $500 baths. Don’t waste your precious time please.

The floating market is geared toward local needs, not tourist bargains. Explore the food stands and their offer. Then, a boat takes you just to the town outskirts and stops by the trees, so you can see the scintillating fireflies. They are everywhere. We then...More

The boats take some getting in and out if if you have a degree if arthritis. But it is well worth the effort. So many colours and the fireflies are a treat.
