There are four sites where you and other busloads of tourists will be taken by horsecart, one of the monastery is nice, the other 3 sites aren't worth the bumpy ride along rutted roads, the worst being the watchtower which is just a concrete building....More

This was the last part of our bicyle tour and we had to cross a small river by boat and then we rode around with our bicyles, which was kind a of nice. Through the village and along the fields.

First you board a small ferry for a few minutes to get over the river. Then up in a small horse carriage. We drove around for some hours visiting old and new temple's. It was includes in our trip so it was a nice afternoon.

Way too touristic, way too crowded and not well maintained and fixed. They asked 10000K for 1h30 of visit in a horse carriage and before that you need to pay the boat. All the people are quite harassing (felt like back in India) and really...More

We were there in the wet season so the ride in the horse and cart was not all that comfortable, but it was an interesting excursion and worth a bit of discomfort. Some fascinating sights along the way. Worth going!
