Mechrey is one of many floating or stilted subsistence fishing villages on the great Tonle Sap, the largest lake in Southeast Asia. Seeing a village is a good antidote to when you’re feeling templed-out and ideal for those more interested in contemporary local life than ancient history. The Tonle Sap is home to a unique way of living thanks to a natural phenomenon that sees the lake swell in size up to sixfold. To cope with such dramatic seasonal variation in water levels, the settlements here have adapted to cope with the ebb and flow by building their properties on floating bamboo rafts or high up on stilts.

This private tour takes you to a lesser visited part of the lake system, to the village of Mechrey. Your guide will bring this incredible natural phenomenon to life and enable you to interact with the people who making their lives from the lake in a respectful and meaningful way. This is a great chance to witness one of Cambodia's and the world’s most amazing natural wonders.
