Getting in a giant tractor tire sized ring and floating down the river sounds really relaxing doesn't it? Now add in on this 2km stretch bars 50m a part, dirt cheap drinks, free shots, 'happy' drinks, zip lines on rackety wooden structures and no railings between the bar and the water and sharp rocks in the shallower bits.

Everyone knows somebody here who has ended up in hospital as a result. There are no safety precautions.

Even I'm bruised and I'm really stiff, all I had was three drinks. I adored playing mud volleyball, everyone was covered in mud because it was impossible to stand up and there were large hoses to clean off with afterwards. I did 6 zip lines, all really high and a slide that tossed you out over the river. Don't see any company back home letting me try that. I did lose my grip once and went down suddenly from a great height. The relief that avoided the rocks by a meter.

Yeah, much as I love tubing, I'm not trying it in that kind of environment again

I'm in a new country again! Seriously the time seems to fly by. It took us 12 hours to get to the capital from Vietnam. The place is sooo very pretty. Not much to report yet apart from the gay bar. Our tour guide took me and my room mate with her when she went to meet her friends. It was so much fun.
