Itinerary

On the Floating village Siem Reap, 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 worldโ€™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 kmยฒ, draining into the Tonle Sap River and in the wet season, the Tonle Sap Lake swells to 12,000 kmยฒ. 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.

On our Floating village Siem Reap, we will take a boat trip around the Tonle Sap Lake to see floating villages and get a taste for life ruled by monsoonal rains and water-based agriculture by well explanation by your tour guide. Afterwards jump back on the remork (Tuk Tuk) to return to Siem Reap.

  1. Tonle Sap Floating Village

    Our experience at the Tonle Sap Floating Village was truly remarkable, largely thanks to our outstanding guide, Sokhom. His vast knowledge and helpful nature greatly enriched our tour of the fascinating floating fishing village. The monastery was not only informative but also full of friendly dogs and cats who warmly greeted us. Exploring village life outside of the city center in this way proved to be incredibly valuable, making it a highly recommended excursion for gaining unique insights into local traditions and lifestyles.

    During our visit to the Tonle Sap Floating Village, our guide, Chamnan, impressed us with his brilliant knowledge and helpful demeanor throughout the tour. The floating fishing village left us in awe with its unique charm and way of life. The monastery on the waters was not only informative but also filled with many friendly dogs and cats that added to the welcoming atmosphere. This excursion outside the city centre provided us with a truly worthwhile experience, offering a glimpse into the rich village life that thrives on the waters of Tonle Sap. I highly recommend this tour!
