Itinerary

On the Siem Reap floating village, you will explore by remork known as Cambodian tuk tuk for a half-day tour. Leaving Siem Reap we travel through the countryside to Tonle Sap Lake.

The Tonle Sap one of the world’s most productive bodies of fresh water. This lake was classified as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1997. During the dry half of the year, the lake shrinks to as small as 2,500 km², draining into the Tonle Sap River and in the wet season, the Tonle Sap Lake swells to 12,000 km². Each year, millions of fish come to spawn in the seasonally flooded forest surrounding the lake, attracting a myriad of water birds as well as people, who have settled in villages along the shores and who live with the rhythm of the water.

Take a boat trip around the lake to see floating villages and get a taste for life ruled by monsoonal rains and water-based agriculture. Afterwards jump back on the remork to return to Siem Reap.

Take the back roads back to town on this half day tour in Siem Reap and witness seasonal agricultural activities like cricket catching, rice planting and harvesting, smoking fish, prohoc making (fish paste). Then stop at a local village to pick up Khmer snacks and explore how local community sell their products. Before return to home, we visit a Buddhist monastery.
