Not to be deterred, I opted for a one day trek amongst the rice 'fields' and minority tribe villages. This turned out to be a walk along a dusty track, passing barren terraced rice-fields (harvest done already), complete with aforementioned minority tribeswomen sticking to us the entire time like remoras. No amount of head shaking, ignoring or fast walking would convince them that I really did not want extra bracelets & beads. I debated jumping into the river just to see what they would do, but think they've dealt with these desperate tourists before so probably had someone waiting in a boat to cover that avenue of escape too!
All in all, not my favorite destination, but think circumstances & timing were not in my favour. I guess it could only be better for me next time!
