What You Can Expect
The lake is home to rare and endangered water birds and is unique for its flow of water, which changes direction twice a year. With the change in seasons, the lake has the ability to expand and shrink dramatically. At the height of the wet season, the lake can be more than 7,400 square miles (12,000 square kilometers) and provides half of the fish supply for Cambodia.
On the return journey to Siem Reap, take the back roads into town and get a glimpse of daily rural activities, such as rice planting and harvesting, duck farming, and making the popular but smelly fish paste. Stop at a local Buddhist temple, chat with the villagers and try the local snacks.
If you want to experience an amazing insight into a different way of life, or just need a break from exploring the temples, I 100% recommend this tour. I loved every part of this tour. The tuk-tuk ride outside of Siem Reap gives you a great view of the rice fields and the beautiful people of Cambodia. Boating through the town of Tonle Sap was such an eye-opener. To see the children climbing from house to house, the floating farms, and to be able to experience how people live so differently- that's the best part of traveling! I only had two days in Siem Reap and I extremely glad that I spent one of them on this tour.
Fantastic trip the tuk tuk ride was fun great going through the villages the lake was amazing our guide was fab don't miss it
