There is a range of treks to take if you want to dig deeper into the jungle. Remember that temperatures can drop to 13°C at night, so make sure to bring your own sleeping bag and warm clothing. Proper shoes for walking in different terrain is a must. Mosquito nets are usually provided. Some treks offer porters who will carry your backpack or knapsack. Take some time to figure out what you really want to experience since there is a vast supply of treks including everything from fish massage, forest reserve, monkey sanctuary to white water rafting through the jungle.
Do & See
The centre of town is based around the waterfront area, which is home to a charming mix of old and new – trendy bars, restaurants and hotels line the area, but are contrastingly interspersed with traditional markets, fishing ports and hawker stalls, a great blend.
