Discover Siem Reap's secrets as you explore by remork (Cambodian tuk tuk) with an English speaking guide. Leaving Siem Reap, travel through the countryside to Tonle Sap Lake.
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 km. During the dry half of the year, the lake shrinks to as small as 2500 km, 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 around the lake to see floating villages and get a taste for life ruled by monsoonal rains and water-based agriculture. Afterwards jump back on the remork to return to Siem Reap. Take the back roads back to town and witness seasonal agricultural activities like cricket catching, rice planting and harvesting, smoking fish, fish paste (prohoc making), duck farming. Stop at a local village to pick up Khmer snacks and explore. Visit a Buddhist monastery before heading home.
Remork and boat ride
We had to kill time before a late flight and this was the perfect way; a very good guide, interesting locations and Tuk Tuks are just such a great way to get around.
