What To Expect

Beng Mealea
After pick up from hotel so we will drive to visit the Beng Mealea temple first so it take around 1 hours and 30 minutes.

Beng Mealea Temple (its name means "lotus pond") is nearly 80km from Siem Reap town at the foot of Kulen Mountain. It was built as Hinduist temple, but there are some carvings depicting Buddhist motifs. Its primary material is sandstone and it is largely unrestored, with trees and thick brush thriving amidst its towers and courtyards and many of its stones lying in great heaps. For years it was difficult to reach, but a road recently built to the temple complex of Koh Ker passes Beng Mealea and more visitors are coming to the site.
Built in the 12th Century, many scholars believe it was the model for Angkor Wat. It is just as wonderful of a temple but it is still largely lost in the jungle.
The accommodations made for tourists at Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom have not been made here, and visitors enjoy a much quieter and adventurous experience.

Kompong Khleang
Kampong Khleang is located on the northern lake-edge about 35 km east of Siem Reap town, more remote and less touristed than Kampong Phluk. Visitors to Kampong Khleang during the dry season are universally awestruck by the forest of stilted houses rising up to 10 meters in the air. In the wet season the waters rise to within one or two meters of the buildings. Like Kampong Phluk, Kampong Khleang is a permanent community within the floodplain of the Lake, with an economy based in fishing and surrounded by flooded forest. But Kampong Khleang is significantly larger with near 10 times the population of Kampong Phluk, making it the largest community on the Lake.
The area can be reached by boat from the Chong Khneas docks or by a combination of road to Domdek on Route #6 and then boat to the village, the best method depending on the time of year. During the dry season, boats cannot get all of the way to the main villages.

After we finish our excursion of floating village and we will return to the hotel.

Wonderful tour guide!

Such a great tour guide! Lim Pengkhun provides an excellent service. He is very kind and accommodating, and made us feel very comfortable and welcome. He had cold bottles of water and towels prepared for us to refresh after the tours. We felt he went above and beyond with his time, allowing us to really get a full experience on the tours. He talked with us about our cultures, and it was very informative to hear him share his insights about Cambodian culture. Would highly recommend!

Friendly and reliable driver. We have 7 days in Siem Reap (including one day to Bat cave).
We all enjoyed hearing him telling us of local folk stories and also recommended a number of things to do such as watching the local show and brought us local snack. Highly recommend!
