I thought it is gonna be completely inside the water. But actually it is half way there. Anyhow it was fun but doesn't worth traveling for more than 2 hours for it as you will set in uncomfortable boat for 45 mins to get there...More

Definitely worth a visit at least once. Take the dugout and paddle and forget using an outboard motor. Enjoy the tranquility of moving slowly along the narrow waterways that open out into larger lakes. The trip around the village takes about 30 minutes, a meeting...More

Really welcoming community and a very interesting set up. We reccommend taking donations of pens/paper etc for the school as we definitely wished we had been able to donate more practical things than money.
