We enjoyed the boat ride and was mesmerised by the beautiful scenery. The car was spacious and comfortable and the driver ensured a smooth and safe journey for us. Food was good too. We loved the grilled goat meat dipped with the fermented bean sauce and wrapped with the rice paper. The guide was friendly and extended an extra mile by recommending us a dining place to have our dinner. She even reserved a table for us and brought us there before she left. Thumbs up for the wonderful service!
