Overview

Go off the beaten path from Siem Reap on a full-day tour that visits Kampong Khleang, a floating village on Tonle Sap, and the 11th-century Khmer temple of Beng Mealea. Meet the families at the floating village and have lunch at a local home, then explore the inner reaches of Beng Mealea, which sits at the edge of a dense jungle.
  • Experience a floating village on Tonle Sap by boat
  • Eat lunch at a home in the village
  • Discover the ruins of Beng Mealea temple, an atmospheric site that pre-dates Angkor Wat
  • Includes picnic lunch, transportation, and hotel pickup and drop-off
Begin your day with morning pickup at your Siem Reap hotel, then travel by road about 30 minutes to the shores of Tonle Sap.

When you reach the lake, transfer to your boat for a cruise around the massive lake, one of the world’s richest sources of freshwater fish and the biggest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia. The lake is also home to many small communities that provide insight into traditional Cambodian village life.

Head to Kampong Khleang, a village that perches on stilts above the water. See the village up close from your boat (conditions permitting), and float through petrified mangrove forests and hidden waterways. Eat a picnic lunch at a home in the village to experience daily life up close.

In the afternoon, depart from Tonle Sap and drive through the countryside to Beng Mealea temple, passing rice fields and local villages. Built in the early 11th Century as a Hindu temple for Suryavarman II, Beng Mealea was overtaken by the jungle until recently. Follow your guide safely over large sandstone blocks to reach the inner sanctuary.

Your tour ends with hotel drop-off in the late afternoon.

Kompong Khleang
In the morning, we head out into northern direction following the contours of the Tonle Sap. Our goal for the morning is the stilted village of Kampong Khleang. Via local paths and almost meandering through the greens and houses, our boat will sail out (depending on the water levels) and show you these houses from the lake. Some of these homes are constructed on top of stilts, reaching a height of 10 meters! The region is known for regions of the petrified mangrove forests and waterways, sometimes hidden form the naked eye. Enjoy the fascinating scenery of Southeast Asia’s largest freshwater lake. A picnic lunch box will be served at local house where you can experience to see daily life at the village.

Stop At:  
Beng Mealea
We travel through the thriving countryside, past rice paddy fields and local villages to Beng Mealea temple. Beng Mealea “Lotus Pond” Temple from the early 11th Century was built by Suryavarman II as a Hindu Temple. Beng Mealea is a temple hidden in a maze of jungle - if there is one temple to explore resplendent with jungle engulfing it, it is Beng Mealea. Clambering over large sandstone blocks to reach the inner sanctuary and eerie worship corridor is an exploration to remember. Architecturally, Beng Mealea is noted for its innovative, in its time, construction of hallways, it was a very large temple with wide galleries foreshadowing Angkor Wat.
