Those who love getting off the beaten track and still want to admire the beauty of karst landscape, Thung Nang is the one. The sampan boat ride at Thung Nang is about 90 minutes. Along the boat ride, you may view a few domestic ducks swimming peacefully on the mirror surface of the river and sometimes, there is a few fishermen floating on a tiny boat netting here and there.
