Among the activities that we did for the day, I enjoyed river rafting the most. The activity lasted for about an hour. The small raft traversed through a shallow stream with the help of a raftman (^o^ is this correct?...assumed it is as we are riding a raft instead of a boat). The place is tranquil and not very touristy so the ride was very relaxing. Along the way, we saw the beauty of nature...dragonflies, colorful birds, butterflies, unusual-looking insects and even water snake! At the end of it are dozens of huts with lots of locals having their picnic.

Note:
Please do not miss this one as some people do. My mother passed this one up because she thought it would be a rough ride. She got very tired from the initial hike that we did.

It would be nice if you could bring a waterproof camera...so many photo opportunities for those lovely creatures. The guide kept our camera for us because there is a big tendency that it will get wet.
