While others flock to the railway market to watch trains pass, you'll be riding the rails — very slowly traversing the bustling market!

  • Enjoy a buffet lunch on a floating camp on the lake.
  • In the afternoon, go on a leisurely jungle trek. You will have an excellent opportunity to explore the ecology of one of the world's oldest rainforests and to see a great variety of exotic plants and tropical hardwood trees with huge roots, such as orchids, palms, ferns, bamboo, and mosses. Birds, such as the hornbill, live high up above the canopy, gibbons can often be heard calling to their mates, a macaque or a leaf monkey may be swinging through the branches, and beautiful butterflies flutter around.
