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.
Our guide was fantastic. Very well versed on everything local from the culture to the environment and loads of detail in between. Thoroughly recommended.
It was amazing. Tho this is my 2nd time to ton le sap , it's still as eye opening and i would say it's one of the must visit places in siem reap apart from the angkor temples. Our tour guide was really friendly and informative. He made sure to explain everything that we need to know.
I recommed this tour. Very interesting. The boat ride out to the villages was eye opening. You will see how the families live on the river. They have their own schools and stores. Take this tour!
Excellent half day trip. The guide was great and very accomodating.
Great tour Good to see another way of life.
We were transported in the local Tuk-Tuk. There were four in the convoy holding two passengers. Our guide was "M" who was our guide 2 day previously. Once again his command of the English language enabled him to explain in great detail what Tonle Sap was all about. It was a very hazy day. Recommended.
Had a fun and informative time. Loved the Hammock bar
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
Had a lovely time on this tour. The tuk tuk experience is the real deal as we get to travel along the city roads of Siem Reap and the dirt paths through villages. It's an eye opener to see and feel, and even smell the real conditions of navigating these roads.
Tip: Bring sunglasses and a mask to keep the wind and dust out of your face. I could literally feel the sand and dust particles hit my face as we sped along -- that's how real the experience was!
The cruise down the river, past Kampong Phluk and finally to the lake was leisurely and lovely. We got to see how these locals live their lives on the water, which is the whole point of this trip. A great morning spent on the lake.
