A Very Educational and Eye-opener to City Dwellers
The company was very prompt to collect us from the hotel. Received a whatapps notification and everything webt on smoothly. The ridevti the ticketting office, boarding a boat and taking the ride up to Tonle Sap Lake and up at Kompong Phluk were seamless. The guide was careful and had taken initiative to provide adequate information on the way of life for the people at the village.
Look the sight of the children, happy and free from worries learning as much as they can in school. The entire trip is worth the while and it is an opener to both my wife and me.
