An amazing experience

We had a visit with the guide Pon and his friend driver. One stop at sticky rice making village and tasting , visit at local market and finally the boat tour and one stop at a school to give some books to the children. Pon is a very nice guide with good English that will tell you all the things you want to know about Tonlé Sap and the surroundings. I will definitely recommend this activity.
Great varied trip

I had a great time on this trip, a nice change from the heat of walking round the temples the day before. Guide was friendly and really helpful. We stopped at a local market, rice coconut stall, floating village boat trip and then lunch. I recommend this trip. Would have been a couple but my husband felt rough and stayed in hotel, so glad I went ahead on my own :)
A friendly reminder to be thankful for everything you have!

Our tuk-tuk driver (Mr. Rasak, tuk tuk #4) brought us here for an afternoon ride through the village. This experience was a rather eye-opening one. The village sits on stilts because of the summer monsoons. The entire village relies on the land/water for their source of food. You will feel every emotion possible during your visit. Every penny spent goes towards the village. I can not wait to get back home and find out more information on how I can personally help. Thank you for this friendly reminder to be humble, grateful, & kind!
This is a fascinating experience...

This is a fascinating experience. Just a short drive from Siem Reap, with a stop at a small village to walk through the daily market, then onto a flat-bottomed punt just the two of us plus our guide, the captain and his 10-year-old crew member for a fascinating journey along the river, past houses perched on poles ten or twelve metres above us. The water level in the river was low but that did not impede our progress, then we were out on the wide lake for a stop at a floating cafe and crocodile farm. On the way back we alighted at the river-side village for a walk along the main street, stopping to hand out books and pencils to the swarm of children that gathered around us - as it was a Sunday and there was no school books and pencils provided to us as part of the tour, then a stop at an enchanting roadside restaurant on the way back to town, with a choice of normal tables and chairs or large suspended swings where you could sit on cushions - and the food was excellent and included in the tour price. Our guide Billy Barang was a source of great knowledge about the river, the lake, the villages and the people, including the history of the region and the source and impacts of the great amounts of water that flow from the Himalayas to create the vast flood-plains that necessitate the building of the homes high above potential flood levels. Our driver Da was courteous, friendly and provided us with a smooth ride over the, at times bumpy, roads. This tour is extremely good value-for-money and we thoroughly recommend it/

Konpmn Khleang Floating Village

Overall, the experience was amazing. Our guide was super informational as well as continuously asked us questions to ensure we were enjoying our time. We stopped by the roadside on our way to Tonle Sap Lake for stick rice and it was amazing! Seeing the process in real person was super cool and the rice was delicious.

The ride through the village before reaching the lake was eye opening and something people that are not familiar with that way of life should experience.

The floating ride itself was also very enlightening. However, we went at the end of the dry season so all homes were completely out of the water and the stilts were very well displayed. I would think the rainy season tour would be a bit better.

Overall though, a great experience and would recommend.
