Lovely and interesting visit

On a very hot day we had a lovely cruise on the largest freshwater lake in southeastern Asia. Although a long drive from Siem Reap, the journey was worth it. The floating village was fascinating with every conceivable facility available including Churches and restaurants.

Amazing!

Nak was an amazing tour guide, went above and beyond to cater to our interests and personalise our experience! My favourite was Kamplong Pluk village, the floating village where you can see the culture of the temples and schools. Highly recommend if in Siem Reap.

Trip to Tonle Sap Lake

This was a refreshing trip to Tonle Sap Lake! It was fascinating for me to learn about the two floating villages in the area as well as the respective adaptations have to cope with the weather conditions. Highly recommended!

Unique and enjoyable trip to the floating villages

Our family of 4 had a highly interesting trip to two floating villages guided by Mr Van Lonh. We learnt a lot from his sharing of the villager’s way of life and the eco-system in Tonle Sap. He was teamed by the driver, Mr Vong whose MPV is spacious and clean. We were assured by his safe driving. The highlight for me was to paddle the canoe among tall mangroves in the lake. I highly recommend this trip. ????

An enjoyable trip

Being a solo traveler any apprehensions about joining a small sightseeing party were soon dispelled by the professionalism of the tour guide and the friendly crowd on the mini bus. The trip to the lake was interesting, before we embarked a lady came up to us and took our individual photos. On the lake whole communities live afloat complete with floating church and school. The crocodile farm was interesting though I declined croc-meat jerky. On our return to the car park the lady who had taken our photos had put the images onto plates to sell back to us. All in all it was an enjoyable day.
