This small village has several floating markets, narrow networks of khlongs (channels), scattered in different areas. Trade is done by boat. Many of the market people wear the traditional costume: a straw hat and a fitted shirt, symbol of the peasant community. They sell their products to clients on the banks or on board. Overloaded sampans offer delicious fresh vegetables, fruits, spices and decorative handicrafts.

The water rushes down 16 successive falls and the surrounding forest is populated by gibbons and rare bird species. Near the Pala-U Waterfall is a Karen village, which was founded there about 200 years ago by people of Burmese origin. You start your day early and on the way West and the mountains, you will see many pineapple plantations. Continuing through intact tropical forest to the Pala-U waterfall, you will make a trek to the 4th waterfall that houses a natural pool populated with carps. Here you can enjoy your time close to this beautiful waterfall and in the surrounding jungle, monkeys and wild birds can be heard and sometimes even seen. After the waterfall, you visit the village of the Karen hill tribe. Until today the villagers lead a life governed by ancient traditions and they have their own language.
