“My guide, Charlie, was knowledgeable and energetic. Couldnt have asked for a better experience! Please remind him to look into the Amos Walker books by Loren D. Estleman. The first book is "Motor City Blues". First rate crime series heavily steeped in Detroit history. Great tour! Thank you.”

“This tour far exceeded my expectations. I really appreciate Kham's patience and enthusiasm as she taught me to cook Lao food. I also loved the opportunity to spend time with her and her family in their home.”
ITINERARY

Discover Siem Reap's secrets as you explore by remork (Cambodian tuk tuk) on a private 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 km². During the dry half of the year, the lake shrinks to as small as 2,500 km², 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. Afterward jump back on the remork to return to Siem Reap.

Take the back roads back to town on this private 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.

(If you’d prefer to travel as part of a regular group experience, please book our Siem Reap Tonle Sap Secrets group tour.) 

This tour is priced for a minimum group size of two travellers. A solo traveller may still book this private experience but will be charged the base rate for two travellers.
