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.

Don’t hesitate & book this tour! My tour guide & Vespa driver’s name is Chen. And what an awesome experience it was! Highly recommend. Since I was traveling during low season, it was just us two so I benefited from a private tour. And we had such a great time! I got to witness and experience some of the rural sights of Cambodian life - cows, mushroom farms, rice paddies and herb plantations, visit local temples and the pièce de résistance: sunset at incredible floating villages which are incredible and located at the Great Lake of Cambodia aka Tonlé Sap. It’s largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia and one of the most diverse and productive ecosystems in the world!!! Plenty of photos and videos were taken and it was a gorgeous sunset. Chen provided some fruit snacks and drinks along the way as well. this experience was fabulous and I enjoyed every bit of it!! ❤️ Thank you!

It was such an informative and fun experience to go to the local markets and learn about all the different vegetables/meats that are local to Cambodia vs. imported and how they are used. The instructors were very friendly and professional and always checked to see if we were happy with what we cooked and by god was it fragrant and delicious. I know a lot of people do food tours but being able to cook some local dishes is invaluable knowledge you can then take back home with you and re-experience such a memorable trip. 100% recommend!

We had a very experienced and competent guide and a sovereign driver. Angkor Wat and the many other temples are extremely impressive. The tour to the floating village was a special experience with stops at rice, vegetable and mushroom farmers. The team was very courteous, nice, clean and on time. We definitely highly recommend this tour.

Our guide, Makara and our driver Jong were the perfect hosts. Tour started on time and we felt very welcome. We absorbed the great information but didn’t feel overwhelmed! I recommend without hesitation the tour! Many thanks again, Sara and Luciano (Lu)

Was an amazing local experience the flavor, the people, the tuktuk and the tour around the local market was unique. When they said that you are gonna cook with local it’s 100% true. I really really recommended this experience
