Overview
Half-day group tour from Siem Reap with a local guide. Enjoy your the tour in the morning or afternoon with about 45-minutes’ drive to the fishermen’s village of Kompong Phluk whose name means 'harbor of the tusks' and Cambodia great lake. Enjoy Tonle Sap Lake, it’s a lake with no ends in front of you, birds flying slowly overhead and surrounding with the interesting village as well as wetland area.

A local boat ride take you the Tonle Sap Lake and village where you will see nature in a way you’ve only seen in picture books and it’s where you will now see villagers houses, school, government houses built on high stilts but the pagoda on the only butte (the only building which is not on stilts) and see the activities of the villagers who your expert guide will teach you about their culture, the life style, and the ecosystem of this fascinating place.

This tour concludes hotel pick up and drop-off. Please choose from one of two departure times when you book.

  • Magnificent views of Tonle Sap Lake and Kompong Phluk
  • On-board guide commentary ensures you don’t miss anything
  • Hassle-free hotel pickup and round-trip transfers from Siem Reap

What to Expect
Begin your adventure with pickup from your Siem Reap hotel for the roughly 45-minute journey to Kompong Phluk. Depending on the season, you’ll travel by minibus (February to July) or by minibus and boat (August to January). Transfer to a small boat and set sail along the lake, passing stilted houses and schools, floating markets, pagodas, and fishing boats as your guide tells you more about local life, customs, and traditions. Wet-season visitors can also opt to enjoy a traditional canoe ride around the flooded forests (for an additional expense) and experience the region’s unique ecosystem as you glide between the semi-submerged trees. Back in Siem Reap, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Short and simple: Noted this tour on Trip Advisor 'last minute' for Siem Reap. My partner had never been to the lake so why not. I normally book directly with a tour company. On the Green Era website this tour was listed at $5 PP less than through Trip Advisor booking. Okay save
