Not as expected. Dry season means no boat trip.

Bus collected us and returned us to hotel. Very good. We went in the dry season. So there was no "floating" village as such just a very tall village. The river was dry so no real boat trip, we went to a floating cafe and waited 2 1/2hrs for the sunset. With no way off... Still the beer was not too expensive and the sunset was awesome.. Chilled out trip if you can handle being "trapped" on a floating cafe. Enjoyed the experience, better in the rainyseason I bet.
