We put together this exceptional day tour to provide an option for visitors to explore the beauty of Siem Reap and the surrounding countryside. Not only do we take you to Kompong Khleang, a floating village that kept its authenticity through the years, the tour also includes lunch with friendly locals and cycling around Siem Reap’s splendid countryside. And what is be better than to let you take this adventure aboard a vintage jeep!
From relaxed (low) to ones where you need to be fit to join in.Low
No surprises here. These tours/activities are those most anyone can do if they are fine with fairly flat walks and getting in and out of transport.Medium
Like to be active, even very active, but not pushed too far. This is the one for you.High
These tours/activities require you to be very fit. Probably not suitable for children.
Some tours or activities are a total immersion ... others offer just a taste of a different way of life. Below is how we\'ve classified things to help you make a selection.Low
Consider these tours or activities as unlikely to surprise. They will still give you fantastic insight into the destination and/or a great experience.Medium
You might find yourself on these tours/activities confronted by quite a different way of doing things to that you are familiar with. Think food, language, customs, religions, mode of transport. For the slightly more adventurous.High
Think things you probably wouldn\'t do on your own ...
Don’t forget to set your alarm: pick-up time is between 8am and 8.30am at your hotel!
Once everyone’s on board, we head out of Siem Reap (the city) and drive to the beautiful countryside area. There, we cycle along the red soil roads through some splendid villages (don’t worry, it’s a nice and peaceful ride and flat the whole way) . On our way, we stop by the local fish market where you can watch (and take part in?) traditional Khmer daily fish trading. After the ride, we take a small break to get a refreshing and well-deserved drink.
The day is far from over though! Our journey carries on with the visit of one of the most impressive floating village in Cambodia: Kompong Khleang. We will board a boat and discover the village and the astonishing flooded forest.
At some point, your stomach will start rumbling… Worry not! That’s when we take you to a stilt house in the village to share a typical Khmer lunch with friendly locals. After lunch, we get back aboard to reach a pagoda located on an island. We always have a great time there, walking by the monk school and watching monks in their day-to-day routine.
After that we’ll head to the Vietnamese floating village. The Vietnamese village is not like the rest of Kompong Khleang, in that it is not composed of stilt houses. The houses there are built on floating objects and therefore float on the Tonlé Sap. The Vietnamese village moves along the river (and sometimes up to the lake) according to the season and is something you’ve most likely never seen before. You’ll get to see the floating school, hospital and local shops (they even have a hair dresser!)… An amazing sight, we promise!
We then get back to the bus and start driving back to Siem Reap through other rural villages. We stop in one of them so you can get to interact with villagers. When we’re lucky, we get to see some Cambodian famous water-bird species*** in rice paddies.
We’re generally back in Siem Reap around 5 pm, depending on the number of guests (up to 12) and their interest (interaction, speed on the bicyle…), so you may get back to your hotel a bit earlier or a bit later!
The program may change a bit as our tour leader can decide day by day what is the best option, depending on the weather, the ability of our guests to ride a bicycle, and other matters that may lead him to decide to change the itinerary.
