Private Floating Villages Tour (Best Saved)

Written By Admin

5

No trip to Cambodia is complete without an adventure on the Tonle Sap Lake.  The combined lake and river system is the largest fresh water lake in Southeast Asia and the richest fishing lake in the World. Floating Villages are an amazing sight and within Cambodia there are a number of these villages. Situated on the flood plains of the Tonle Sap Lake the world around these homes undergoes dramatic transformation from dry to wet season. In the dry season homes tower on their tall spindly stilts, fishermen repair boats and nets, children make clay balls to use with their sling shots and enjoy the freedom of being able to run around. In the wet season the water laps at the floor boards, travel is limited to boats and in some instances buckets.  Children paddle to and from school and life revolves around fishing.

General Information
•    This is a poor rural village please be mindful of the environment
•    Please do not hand things out to villagers this contributes to creating a begging cycle and can create jealousy.
•    We recommend heading to the toilet before you go on this trip as facilities are very basic

Your Cambodia trip to the lake departs the city after breakfast, for an unspoilt floating community called Kampong Phluk.  This is astonishing for its stilted-house villages and flooded forest.  We stop on the way for a brief tour of the Rolous Market.  This is a great chance for you to take the photos of locals selling indigenously grown vegetables, different fish species and other local produce.  We take a boat to the floating community of Kampong Phluk, visit an island pagoda, school and houses standing on 8 or 10m high stilts, fish farms and learn about the village life.  We then take rowing boat and venture beyond the villages into the flooded forest, the habitat of some of water-bird species.  We jump back in to the big boat and set off for the Tonle Sap, before returning back to town.
