There is some confusion over the types of routes offered here, red or yellow. We choose Red because we'd heard you don't have to make your own way back into town carrying the tube or pay a deposit. Not sure how true this is... We...More

Tubing down the river has changed loads since recent accidents and the closure of several bars. After collecting your tube from town and enjoying a bumpy trip to the start it's still a refreshing treat in the hot sun. There's four of five bars worth...More

No longer the wild boozy ride it once was. Its now: a bar at the beginning, 3 hours of floating and a bar at the end. It was a little boring and we wish we'd have brought a bottle of booze for the extended float....More

A very fun day doing the Tubing down river. Keep your sun screen will be very handy. Have a good breakfast cause we finished late afternoon. Mornings are the best as not much crowd. Beware of the high pricey drinks along the river.

We were a small group of 3 people, tuning was funny and also somewhat challenging due to low Water level and some stones. Allover there Werke not many people Tubing this time. It is worth the experience :-)

Great day out and guaranteed good time. We went two days in a row and would have gone again if we stayed longer. Finish the day off by visiting space bar!

Hi guys. Me and a friend are looking to go to Cambodia for 3wks at the end of February and we was wondering where the best places to go are? We really like the sound of the tubing adventure and we was wondering what other activities there is to do near by?

In some place of the river there are rocks so i personally never suggest tubing for a pergnant.. Be Safe and itz better to avoid tubing..
