A boat ride, a ride in an old wooden boat, with its old interiors still intact, rattan chairs and all, very authentic. It was a lovely way to spend a lovely afternoon but we were being transportated on the waterway rather on the bus to a silk factory. The silk factory was impressive, the silk was exquisite, very high quality and beautiful. But I'm not a silk person, I'm a cotton person, so it was lost on me. With an organised tour they punctuate the trip with a lot of shopping. We were taken to a jade factory later. Again I'm not a jade person.
