Our driver took us to Lake Tonale Sap, which was an interesting drive seeing the villages on stilts. We paid for our family of five to get a boat to the floating villages, got the tickets, then 10 mins later an official came and asked us for $20 more as apparently our kids were not kids, despite having seen passports at ticket purchase. The boat was ok, the guide was poor despite good English. The floating village was very poor and I found it very sad to see the squalor that these folk live in. The country side villages seemed much better. However, I think thousands of tourists going to this one little village has created a cycle of dependence on begging. Women with small kids, kittens and cobras came up to our stationary boat and demanded money. The driver and guide did nothing to avoid this, in fact I am sure it is all part of the tour. The crocodile farm was just one small pool seething with overcrowded crocs. Skip this and instead get your driver to take you out to the countryside.
