Your Local English-speaking guide will meet you at 8 am from your hotel. As you travel to Tonle Sap Lake which will take about 1 hour drive and you’ll pass by markets and small villages and along the causeway to the lake’s edge. When we reach the Khleang River, we’ll transfer to a private river craft for the next phase of our trip – a peaceful ride that takes us to Kompong Khleang village and then on to the flooded forest and farm (in dry season Oct-Jun).

On reaching the village, you’ll note that many of the homes are built on high stilts, some standing as tall as 10 meters. With your guide, you’ll visit the village’s and school where you can join in handing out school supplies to the teachers and students if you wish to do so, then you have to purchase school supplies on the way (please advise your guide about this if you wish to do it).

Later, we will have picnic lunch a local house in Kompong Khleang where you’ll enjoy way of life in village, then have time to relax and appreciate the peaceful Cambodian real life.

At the end of the tour we will make our way back to Siem Reap and drop you off at your guest house or hotel.

Great tour where you'll trully see how the locals live.

Definitely the best tour with a guide I have ever experienced. They showed us very interesting local life in the floating village of Kompong Khleang. 100% worth the money.

Very interesting Trip

Me and my girlfriend had a very nice tour with our guide Voath. He was very handsome and spoke good English. Also he could provide good knowledge to everything we asked. The lake itself is huge and almost surreal. The village was super interesting to see as well.

Amazing experience

This trip was one of the highlights of our vacation and my family and I highly recommend this experience for anyone who wants to see how Cambodians are living outside of the main tourist areas. The village is stunning and green era travel was perfect. Our guide choub and driver Channa were very professional, kind and knowledgeable. I learned a lot about Cambodian history and how the locals are living. There was no question that went unanswered. We were picked up at our hotel on time, we drove out to the village and walked through for a bit. We stopped and had some local smoked fish and then continued to our boat. We road along the river until we got to the lake and floated there for a while as we watched the sun go down. After the boat trip ended we were dropped at the restaurant we wanted to go to. No hussle, no messing us about. Transportation, a unique village and a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Exactly what we wanted.

Fantastic Tour with Nak and Vong

I went with my sister for the tour and we had an amazing time. Both our driver Vong and our tour guide Nak were amazing to deal with. I’ve learned so much about the history of Cambodia and we learned all about the local people and their customs. It was great to meet the local people and Nak was very helpful when we had any questions or if we needed anything he was always very happy to assist. It was especially great to get the tour from Nak as he is a local of the village and grew up there. I would definitely recommend this tour for everyone as it’s very informative and very interesting. I would come back again during wet season just so I could see the water levels when they are high too. 10/10

Stelzenhäuser auf dem größten Süsswassersee Südostasiens

Natürlicherweise ist im März die Trockenzeit weit fortgeschritten und daher der Tonle Sap See in seiner größten Ausdehnung in der Regenzeit nur zu erahnen. Andererseits kamen die tatsächliche Höhe der Stelzenhäuser und die Lebensbedingungen der Einwohner von Kampong Khleang sehr gut zu Tage. Besonders Nak, unser Guide, hat es dabei verstanden uns mit viel Empathie die Lebensbedingungen der Bevölkerung näher zu bringen. Er blieb uns keine Antwort auf unsere Fragen hinsichtlich Wirtschaft, Landwirtschaft, Kultur, Buddhismus oder Schulwesen schuldig.Wir bekamen von ihm im Klassenraum der Schule sogar Khmer-sprachlichen "Privatunterricht". Sehr zur Freude der schon anwesenden Schüler. Schulunterricht fand zur Zeit unseres Besuchs der Schule nicht statt, da die Morgenklassen von 7 bis 11 stattfinden und der Nachmittagsunterricht für die nächste Jahrgangsstufe ab 13 Uhr beginnt. Würde jede Tour den Unterricht stören kamen die Kinder auch nicht mehr zum Lernen.Nak ist auf alle unsere Fragen und Wünsche eingegangen und hat uns auch so manches über das übliche hinaus gezeigt/erklärt.Besonders seine Empfehlung hinsichtlich des Mittagessens war ein sehr gelungenes Erlebnis.Wenn man etwas über Land und Leute kennenzulernen möchte ist diese Tour das richtige und Nak als Guide mit Herz und Seele dabei. Sehr empfehlenswert
