  • Transport included

  • Pick up at your hotel in central Siem Reap

What To Expect

The Tonle Sap is called the 'great lake' and is one of the two main topographical features of Cambodia. During the rainy season, it can swell from 3,000 square kilometers to 7500 square kilometers. Tonle Sap is also one of the world's richest sources of freshwater fish.

In this tour, we drive 30 minutes to the departure point at Chong Khneas village and cruise along a canal, past floating villages complete with schools, restaurants, and even a hospital. See fishing nets being mended, children swimming and playing, floating pigpens and even crocodile enclosures.

We continue through a section of mangroves and out onto the massive lake, past local fishermen and an amazing array of boats where we will stop at a floating fish and crocodile farm. The roof of this structure makes an excellent spot to take photos of the lake and the surrounding area. This journey provides a truly amazing look into a remarkable way of life.

It was a good opportunity to experience this vast lake and have a fresh perspective on lives of the locals in the countryside. The tour was well planned and went smoothly with our professional local guide. The traditional Khmer dish was tastier than our expectation. Highly recommended tour from Siem Reap!

Love the time being here. We really enjoyed the peaceful wooden boat rides and delicious local food. The activities were also exclusive and impressive thanks to our great local guide. Not far from Siem Reap and definitely worth a visit.

I'm not sure about the others but I was really into this region. Not so touristy with most of the experiences were authentic and unique. The guide always tried to explain everything to us and worked very helpful. Will definitely book other tours to discover other parts of Cambodia.

Still have question?

How do I book on Inspitrip?

For most experiences on Inspitrip, there are two options: Small Group and Private tour. For both options, you can chat with your local guide and other people in your group even before the trip takes place.
  • Small group tour: operates with a maximum number of people. If you like to make new friends, this is a great option. You would pay for the trip to confirm your slot, then join a chat group with your local guide as well as fellow travel buddies, everything would be on Inspitrip. Get to know them!
  • Private tour: maximizes your privacy and allows you to freely customize the itinerary. First, request to communicate any specific needs you may have, wait a couple minutes for these requests to be confirmed, and then you can proceed to payment.

What is the cancellation and refund policy?

Cancellation is free if you cancel up to 48 hours before the trip date. We believe that this is the fairest way to ensure that both our travelers and local guides are happy.

Does the Small Group option still operate if there are less than the maximum number of people signed up?

Yes, even if you are the only person who signs up for the trip on a given date, the tour will still take place.
