The floating villages were interesting & we liked that aspect of the tour but that was ALL we enjoyed. Getting to the dock was a long ride very up close and personal in an overcrowded non air conditioned minibus, literally having to "walk the plank"...More

This is also called the Floating Village tour. Our hotel Tuktuk driver recommended this since we were done with the temple tours. Now I regret taking the recommendation because we almost got scammed. First, the location is quite far, about 30-45 minutes tuktuk ride from...More

We were on a private tour with Indo-China Services but another couple we chatted with hired a tuk-tuk driver (I would prefer a cab-the road is dusty) and then they purchased there tickets at the lake for the boat.
