Go through the village along shore to Tonle Sap Lake and take a boat trip to discover Kampong Pluk floating community where you can see local lifestyle on the surface of water, high stilted houses, fishing boats and mangrove forest. Then continue to the open lake to enjoy fresh air and the sea-like scenery of this fresh water lake.

Tonle Sap is the most productive body of fresh water in Cambodia. In rainy season, Tonle Sap Lake swells to 12,000 km² the majority of water is from Mekong River. During the dry season, the lake shrinks to as small as 2,500 km² draining back into Mekong 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 the back roads to town on this 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.
