I think we were a bit unlucky to visit on a National Holiday so hardly any craftspeople were on site. We had to content ourselves with a quick look around a workshop and the boat building yard. Not a highlight of our tour!

Ok for an hour or so. The prices for the actual carvings were outrageously expensive compared to other places we have been to in Asia (yes whey also make by hand). Trinkets etc are cheap enough but you can get them anywhere.

Nice break away form the town, can only be reached by boat. We had lunch on the boat and then stopped to look at the small market in the village. Very talented carpenters.
