Stopped here for lunch as part of a full day tour. Called the Floating Muslim Village. Large area to purchase souveniers. Tasty meal with a wide selection. Good service.

Stopped here for Lunch as part of a speedboat tor round various Islands. Wish they found somewhere else for Lunch. Food was horrible and the Staff rude. The whole place was dirty. Amazed these tour companies would use such a place.
