Explore a local village, where you will sample Cambodian snacks and visit a Buddist monastery
  • Travel by remork (Cambodian tuk tuk) and local boat
  • Visit a floating and stilted fishing village on the Tonle Sap Lake
  • See seasonal Cambodian agriculture and aquaculture activities
  • Explore a local village and Buddhist Monastery
  • Enjoy Cambodian snacks
Travel by remork (tuk-tuk) through the outskirts of Siem Reap to the Tonle Sap Lake. Board your boat and cruise through Tonle Sap, observing life on the lake as you travel past floating fishing villages that have their own schools, shops, hospitals and even crocodile farms!

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.

Vantha was our guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and informative about culture related to the market and the population living on Tonle Sap Lake. He chose different and delicious samples of Cambodian snacks and fruits for us to taste. Such an eye opening tour to see how other people live and truly a memory that will never be forgotten. This tour was just incredible all around. Very good experience for my 10 year old daughter and I. Highly recommended.

Highly recommend. Lovely to see the floating villages, learn more about Cambodia from a perspective a book can't give you, and have the experience at the guidance of a wonderful, kind and intelligent guide.

We booked the tour out to Me-Chrey floating village on the edge of the Tonle Sap with Viator. They contracted Urban Adventures to run the trip. We did the half-day tour, which for Me-Chrey was about right, and we found the whole experience remarkable and memorable. Cruising gently through the village we were amazed as westerners how the villagers lived. It certainly made an impact and we would highly recommend this tour. There was a downside, however. We travelled out to the boat pick-up point by tuk tuk. This allowed us to immerse ourselves in the countryside we passed through, but it was very dusty, bumpy and windy. On balance, it added to the experience, but be prepared a scarf and sunglasses are a must. Sadly our tuk tuk driver blew his horn at every vehicle he overtook, every junction, and anything else he saw fit to warn, which was probably as necessary as it was tedious. The other aspect was our boat, which had a most noisy and exposed engine and pretty much rendered conversation difficult if not impossible. That said, it was still a great tour, and as we cruised out to the village we enjoyed all the river life we passed, and the egrets and storks overhead. Our guide said Urban Adventures aim to encourage tourists to experience local life. On this trip they certainly did that.

The tour was great! we visited floating village in November and got the chance to see the every day life of people living there. On our way back our tour guide took 3 stops to show us local snacks. It would be great if we could also pop in to one of the crocodile farms.

We travelled to the lake with our guide ,Van in a tuk tuk along some lovely countryside. Our driver was good, managing city traffic and then very bumpy county roads. The floating village was interesting, almost felt like we were intruding into their world, however it was nice to listen to village life when our boat stopped for a short time. Loved seeing the children having fun in the river. On our return tuk tuk ride, Van took us to a small village to enjoy some local sweets. Yum indeed. Throughly enjoyed this half day tour.
