Exploring the floating villages of Tonle Sap Lake is a popular choice for a day trip from Siem Reap, but the most atmospheric time to visit is at sunset. On this 4-hour evening tour, cruise to the floating village of Chong Khneas, glide past lotus fields and stilted houses, visit a crocodile farm, and enjoy a typical Cambodian lunch at a floating restaurant.
Cruise around the vast Tonle Sap Lake, a UNESCO biosphere reserve
Stop to take photos of the lotus fields and watch the romantic sunset over the lake
Tuck into a delicious Cambodian-style lunch at the Queen Tara floating restaurant
Great-value tour includes hotel pickup, lunch, and round-trip transport
We thoroughly enjoyed our sunset cruise. It was a good start to our stay in Siem Reap. The guide was informative and very friendly. The food on the cruise was good. I think that the visit to the crocodile farm wasn't necessary. It was a good way of warding off sleep on the day of arrival. Beautiful sunset.
The guide explain the details.. nothing much to see on the floating village aside from the crocodile..
it was like 40min on boat to reach the floating village.. the dinner buffer was simply and there are like few of us in the big boat , feel like private boat dinner buffet.. good place to see sunset. overall is good..
This was I top value tour. The guide was very helpful and courteous. It was well organised and a pleasure to be on tour. I can thoroughly recommend it to anyone interested in the Mequon culture and its special attributes.
Not many people at this time of year so it was almost a private tour. Fun to see the lake and floating homes. The fish and crocodile farm was not much to see. Dinner on the big boat was very relaxing and the sun set was beautiful.
The tour on Tonle Sap was excellent and we were extremely fortunate to experience a wonderful sunset over the lake. The dinner was great and boat ride to the floating village was was smooth even though we had a very big downpour at one stage. Sam our tour guide was a real character - friendly and full of charm. Would highly recommend this tour if visiting Siem Reap. Margaret R
This is exactly the tour as described. Luxury? No. But great value. The guide was informative and nice. The dinner was relaxing and picturesque. The food was pretty tasty as well. I like the Khmer food, but if you aren't partial to it, there were also French fries, fried rice and fruit you aren't going to go hungry. The lotus nursery is pretty for pictures a short stop, the boat ride is an interesting view into the floating village, the crocodile farm is amusing.
Although the pick-up was disconcertingly half an hour late and we were trying to telephone to find out what was happening, everything went perfectly from then on. Our guide had good spoken English and was very attentive and informative the tour was very picturesque and interesting, and its pace was pleasantly unhurried and the sunset meal was a delight. On our return, we got our guide to drop us at the corner of Pub Street, where we were in nice time to find a seat on the Temple Club balcony for the free Apsara dance show.
