The return river cruise is very pleasant with the buffet lunch, which is tasty and fresh - good variety of choice and choice of purchasing beer / alcoholic drink if wished. Also given the option of staying an having shuttle boat to night market instead of return to hotel if wished - added bonus as not expected. Great trip - would definitely recommend"
