The lake dwellers and their primary culture include attractions like the floating gardens, the unique leg-rowers, flat-bottomed boats, traditional fishing methods , fabric woven from lotus stalk and silk used for colourful traditional costumes, the experience of travelling across the lake by long-tail boat and more.
On this tour, we will explore the fisherman’s village on the lake, their unique fishing method and one leg rowing style, their livelihood and stilt bamboo houses. We will learn how to make the traditional Cheroot (a type of local cigar), and watch carpenters create traditional wooden boats which are being used on the lake since the olden days until today!
