Cycling is one of the best ways to absorb the rich tropical riverside environment which is filled with water streams, rivers, rocks and rain forests. There are several tracks through the rubber plantations, paddy fields and villages to experience the essence of rural life in the area.
View the rubber tapping that takes place in the morning. Every morning a rubber tapper must remove a thin layer of bark along a downward half spiral on the tree trunk. If done carefully and with skill, this tapping panel will yield latex for up to 5 years. Then the opposite side will be tapped allowing this side to heal over. The spiral allows the latex to run down to a collecting cup. The work is done mid morning so the latex will run longer before drying out.
