Superb tour. The best tour of our holiday.
This was a fantastic tour, and was one of the highlights of our holiday. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, Passing the village by boat was a very special experience, and finally having dinner on a floating pontoon on the lake awesome. I cannot fault this tour one bit, and would advise anybody in the area to go on it. You will not be disappointed. Very good value for money.
Super expérience au lac Tonle avec Sa
Nous sommes enchantés de cette excursion avec Sa en passant par klook Travel résa en ligne, contact qq min après paiement. Top!
Pour la visite, nous avons le temps que nous voulions et Sa nous a proposé un arrêt au marché local. Nous avons eu des explications sur le Tonle Sap et le Cambodge. Le village sur pilotis en lui même est très chouette. Fait le 24 août 2022, après covid il n'y a que très peu de touristes, un vrai régal. Arrêt à une petite "ferme de crocodiles" dans le village. En fait, une famille qui a 2 crocos et élèvent pour la viande des petits, pas l'attrape touristes habituel. Ils essaient de vous vendre une canette de boisson mais pas d'instance. Nous l'avons fait car nous pensons qu'il est important que le tourisme profite à tous ;-)
Nous recommandons Sa et son agence.
