What You Can Expect

Tonle Sap Cruise Small-Group Tour

Tuk Tuk, Siem Reap

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.

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.

This was a very interesting tour and our guide De was the best we had for our whole holiday. Her english was excellent and she had virtually no accent. The tour was great being picked up in tuk tuk and taken to the port where we had a boat trip on the river and passed many buildings on stilts and then a fishing village with boats living on the river. All in all an excellent tour highly recommended.

Fantastic way of gaining an insight into Cambodian life. A particular highlight was visiting a floating village on Lake Tonle Sap and the local market was a real eye opener. Thanks to Vanny for a fantastic job as out guide, very knowledgeable.
