Escape the hustle and bustle of Siem Reap and head to the surrounding countryside on a full-day tour to the floating villages of Tonle Sap. Visit a stilt house, cycle along red soil paths, and enjoy a typical Khmer lunch with the friendly locals.
What to Expect
Depart Siem Reap for this full-day tour of the Cambodian countryside surrounding the city, transfering to Kompong Khleang, a community-owned floating village that has kept its authenticity.
Cycle along the red soil roads through some splendid villages, and stop by the fish market to watch and take part in the Khmer fish trade. After a well-deserved drink, journey to one of the most impressive floating villages in Cambodia. Board a boat to discover the village in the flooded forest.
For lunch, you will go to a stilt house to share typical Khmer food with the locals. Get back aboard your boat to cruise to a pagoda, located on an island. Walk by the school for monks, observing their day-to-day routine.
Next, you will visit a Vietnamese floating village built on objects that can float on Tonlé Sap. The village moves along the river, and sometimes up to the lake, according to the season. Marvel at the floating school, hospital, and local shops.
Return to the bus for the drive back to Siem Reap, passing rural villages en route. Stop at one of them to interact with the villagers and, if you are lucky, see some of the water-bird species that pick at the rice paddies.
