Fortunately, we were there on a day when there were no cruise ships, so we had a quiet river bamboo ride to ourselves. Sam was our bamboo raft guide. He was informative and would stop if you wanted him to do so but never suggest stopping at any of the side vendors - in other words, you did not have to worry about dealing with a sales pitch on a relaxing bamboo raft. The trip took about 90 minutes. It is amazing hearing how loud the bamboo is when it creaks. We came at the perfect time of the year and day for avoiding insects - July and early afternoon - hot, sunny, well after the rainy season. It was so quiet and serene and Sam talked if you asked him questions, but he was quiet when he sensed you were just listening to the bamboo creak. It was a perfectly quiet adventure.
