Full description
Begin your trip with a 45-minute drive into the beautiful countryside, stopping along the way to visit a local village. Upon arrival at Tonle Sap Lake, board a boat for a 1.5-hour ride, watching for some of the migratory birds that can often be seen at the edge of the water.  Tour the floating village of Kompong Phluk whose name means "Harbor of the Tusks," where everything from police stations to schools float on the water. From February to August, the village is dry, and you'll be treated to the sight of houses on stilts. Following your time at Tonle Sap Lake, begin the return trip to Siem Reap, where this tour concludes with drop off at your hotel.

Just returned from the tour and it was a great experience and Jose was a superb host. We were as small group of 6 which was just the right size and we stoped at the market on the way which was fascinating. Although it is currently the dry season we were able to see how people of Kompong Phluk live there everyday life at this time which would have been unimaginable if we had visited during the dry season. Thank you Jose for passing on all you knowledge of the area on to us and for a great tour.

They picked me up at the hotel exactly on time. The guide was very friendly and communicative, although his accent made it sometimes hard to understand everything he said. The group (11 in total) was a nice bunch of people from all over the world. The boat trip was nice, I think the tour was well worth my money and time.

Best group tour experience ever! Our tour guide Mr. San was awesome and so considerate! He introduced many things to us before we got to the port. His introduction was full of details. He also took a lot of good photos for us. Hanging around with him was no pressure at all. The scenery itself was fantastic. It’s unforgettable to see people’s real live in the floating village. People there were also kind to us. I especially would like to thank the mother and son that rode a boat for us. The little boy was so cute and so polite! I really appreciate the well-arranged tour. I will definitely recommend it to anyone who is going to Siem Reap!
