We only found out about this as it was listed in our Rough Guides book, and I am so glad we did! Mr Prasenan was very friendly, and knowledgable, and his paddling skills are incredible! We opted for the five hour canoe trip. After setting off at 6am, just in time to catch the beautiful sunrise, Mr Prasenan produced a delicious home made breakfast for us to enjoy. He then proceeded to show up around the incredible backwaters, and gain a real insight into the local's lives. And because his boat is so small, he can show you sections of the backwaters you won't see on a houseboat. Well worth doing!
