... it was slow and boring. IŽd call it very lame. According to us they could just skip the white water rafting when the water level is too low and reduce the price of the tour by BHT 200.

... blankets and a bed with a matress that is softer than my hostel beds from the last week. The place is nice and quiet, a bit downhill off the temple where all the tourists roam.
