Believe it or not there is more to Siem Reap than just temples, there is one particular wonder of nature that makes for a great day out and is one of the top Siem Reap tourist attractions.
Cambodia’s famous Tonle Sap lake and it’s adjoining river are a must see while in Siem Reap. This huge expanse of water with its floating villages and the many boat tours which accompany it are box that must be ticked on your travel itinerary.
If we were to recommend any boat tour the Your Cambodia team would recommend booking with the Queen Tara for assurance of quality and safety. We filmed our experience from this majestic boat and had a fantastic day out.
The Tonle Sap Lake is connected to the mighty Mekong River by the 125 km long Tonle Sap River. The lakes size and water volume vary consistently over the course of the year and the adjoining river is famed for flowing in opposite directions across each half of the year.
This biodiversity ecosystem is or major importance for the survival of many local communities.
All in all a day out on the Tonle Sap is a great experience but don’t forget to check weather forecasts in advance especially during rainy season.
Most guest houses can usually arrange pick up before you embark on your tour.
