    Tonle Sap Lake
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    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 to ‘Kampong Phluk’ a collection of three small fishing villages in an atmospheric flooded forest setting. Cruise through the village and see unique houses on stilts, and Cambodians at work in the floating forest. Our boat will meander slowly through forest canals, allowing you to catch glimpses of flora and fauna, and see a truly beautiful eco-system.

Excellent tour. Good complement to other Siem Reap activities.
Dec 2019
Very good tour. Even with low water levels from the dry season, the lake is still impressive and the stilts on which the houses are built can be better appreciated when they are not submerged. Trip also provides a nice introduction to normal Cambodian countryside. Sok Chea was the guide.
P.S. He was also the guide for the two-day temple tour. I strongly urge everyone to at least do two days of temples and a trip like this one. Otherwise you are just missing too much. Overall I think Journey Cambodia did a very good job on all three days we traveled with them.

Great Tonle Sap tour with Somchhay
I booked this tour over the internet a few months before we arrived in Cambodia, the company is very efficient and confirmed the booking when we arrived.
We had a private tour, with a guide and driver and just two of us. This is great as I can ask as many questions as I like. Chhay was great, he took us to a local market which was fascinating , the people were so smiley and friendly and didn’t mind us taking photos. He then took us to a lotus farm and we tried the seeds, very nice. All of this on the way to the lake.
We had a boat to our selves too and Chhay told us all about the people in the floating village and how they live. We stopped at a floating restaurant/ crocodile farm, he really packed lots in for us. He really earned his money. Again the driver supplied us with cold water which was very appreciated.

Fantastic journey
We did a half day private tour to Tonle Sap Lake. I made this reservation after a live chat with a Journey Cambodia staff. The live chat person was very helpful and he customized our trip based on our desire and schedule.
Journey Cambodia was beyond our expectation with their quality service, reasonable price and great staffs.
Our private tour to Tonle Sap Lake started at 3pm. Our tour guide, Mr. Sok Chae was very passionate, kind and knowledgable.
He did a great job answering all of our questions and explaining lots of details and interesting stories about Cambodia. We drove about 40 minutes in an air conditioned minivan. Then, we took a boat trip to the Kampong Phluk villages and flooded forest. The unique houses on stilts and their culture were very impressive. We really enjoyed the tour. Thank you, Mr.Sok Chae and Journey of Cambodia for giving us amazing memories of Cambodia!

Eye opening experience
Lucky, our guide, picked us up right on time at our hotel. He educated us along the way about the lake and the homes and people there. He was very interesting and informative. He was born in Siem Reap, and his life story (we asked) was touching.
Lucky was such a good guide in every way... smiling, thoughtful, careful, well educated and familiar with the area as only a local could be.
The tour was fascinating, if not humbling. It is obvious that alot of people in the world don't live with the same amenities we are accustomed to. Getting an education here can be a challenge. Yet, the children still laughed and played, and the people fished and socialized. The boats and homes were often very colorful. The water was high when we went, so we could see the true obstacles for the locals living on the water. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip there and back and thought it was well worth the money! Ask for Lucky!
