  1. Boating in the lakes is a wonderful experience. Make it also safer by wearing life jackets. Pay heed to the safety advice given by guides or boatman. Remember, life is a celebration as well. Respect it!
  1. Just like the way you want to get back from a place with good memories, the people there have wishes too. Be friendly and a good guest by respecting people, cultures, rules, procedures, laws etc. Give yourself a good name and your host some good memories of you. Yes! It means a lot.
