We went earlier in the day as we weren't looking for the party option. A few bars were still open. It only takes around 2 hours in June with no stops. If you want the party option go at 1pm from the tube shop (which...More

Tubing was a lot of fun especially because of the many bars beside the river which are providing good music, alcohol and also some activities (for example jumping into the water from high trees)

Float down the river with a drink and chill with fellow travelers. A lot safer than it was as there are only two designated bars now. The government got rid of the unlicensed ones. A great chilling day out with a lift to and from...More
