Phath is a thoughtful guide and took great care to ensure that the ride was safe and manageable. The ride takes you through path less trodden by tourists and offers some great views. The sunset boat ride was a great way to end the tour, enjoy the view while relaxing in a serene environment. The size of the boat can only accommodate a few people so you can be sure that you don’t need to jostle for a space to enjoy a good view.
