Meet a driver at your hotel in Siem Riep to the 9-mile (14-km) drive to Tonle Sap Lake. During the drive to the lake, you’ll see a scenic landscape of lotus farms, communities, and rice paddies, with traditional farmers tending the crops.

Upon arrival at the lake, transfer into a sightseeing boat, then continue along the shoreline, which fluctuates dramatically from the dry season to the rainy season. With a thriving population of fish and wildlife, Tonle Sap Lake is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve that’s fascinating to explore.

The highlight of the trip is a traditional floating village, where you’ll see the distinctive architecture of Tonle Sap Lake, and learn about daily life and culture in the Cambodian countryside.

Following the boat tour, meet back up with the driver for the return trip to Siem Riep. This tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
