    Very nice experience. I recommend it. I was on a night that there was so much darkness and this permitted to see the fireflies. The trees were just like Christmas trees next to the river. Also, the sky was soooo perfect! I have never seen soo many stars in the last 3 years. I have seen them in my Country but in Manila it is impossible. I loved it. Very peaceful. Just notice that there is no good camera for this. Due to the darkness , the experience is for your eyes only.
