What To Expect

Kompong Phluk
Go aboard our minivan to the great TonLe Sap lake (the biggest fresh water lake in South-east Asia) which will give you a fascinating insight of the true Cambodian life.

Pick-up from your hotel (please make sure you provide your hotel information at time of booking). Drive may take around 1 hour from Siem Reap to the boat’s pier.

You will be invited to ride on a private boat leading to floating village (traditional Khmer floating Village located 30km from Siem Reap). Discover the tall stilted houses, floating hospital, fishery, old lifestyle of the country and the natural landscape of the flooded Mangroves forest. Boat ride lasts around 1h30 – 2 hours and may vary depending on the season.

You will be offered to go for a 15 minutes tour through the flooded Mangroves forest on a small boat (is it not included in the price but it only cost 5 USD) which is a great break on your way to TonLe Sap where you will be able to experience local fauna and flora.

While your boat will finish its ride on a larger view on the TonLe Sap, you will end your day tour admiring the sunset over the lake.

Reviews

Insightful experience about the floating village

Amazing and insightful experience. We got to have a glimpse into the lives of the people living in the floating village. We visited the village and went into a local guesthouse to see inside one of the stilled houses up close. It was really interesting learning about how they live and how they get around. We watched the sunset on the boat tour and we also had a short gondola boat trip through the forest which was $5 extra but definitely worth it! I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to learn more about the floating village.
Amazing - recommended

This was such a good choice! Our tour guide (Bunnak) was very knowledgeable, friendly, and his English was perfect! He told about culture, history, the people and answered many questions. The small boat tour was also really nice through the trees and the sunset boat tour was beautiful! 10/10 recommend!
Expectations exceeded, amazing tour

The whole trip is really nice, most of the trip is spent on the boat driving through the local villages. Our guide Bunnak provided plenty of nice insights into the culture, region and his personal life growing up as a refugee, we were lucky to have such a great guide on the trip. During the tour you can try cool food like crocodile and have a few drinks.
Sunset on the lake was beautiful.
Highly recommended!
Great experience
