More About This Experience

Discover Siem Reap's secrets as you explore by remork (Cambodian tuk tuk) on a half day tour in Siem Reap. Leaving Siem Reap we travel through the countryside to Tonle Sap Lake. The Tonle Sap one of the world's most productive bodies of fresh water. In the wet season, the Tonle Sap Lake swells to 12,000 km?. During the dry half of the year, the lake shrinks to as small as 2,500 km?, draining into the Tonle Sap River. Each year, millions of fish come to spawn in the seasonally flooded forest surrounding the lake, attracting a myriad of water birds as well as people, who have settled in villages along the shores and who live with the rhythm of the water. This ecosystem was classified as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1997. Take a boat trip around the lake to see floating villages and get a taste for life ruled by monsoonal rains and water-based agriculture. Afterwards jump back on the remork to return to Siem Reap. Take the back roads back to town on this half day tour in Siem Reap and witness seasonal agricultural activities like cricket catching, rice planting and harvesting, smoking fish, fish paste (prohoc making), and duck farming. Stop at a local village to pick up Khmer snacks and explore. Visit a Buddhist monastery before heading home.

I really enjoyed this. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of time to explore the temples on our own as well as with him explaining.

Great tour of some local temples and the Tonle Sap! There was not much wildlife around the Tonle Sap when we went (though of course that was not the fault of the tour). The lotus farm was very pretty. Our guide also took us to a local market (one that locals actually bought things from) and bought u... Read more
