Overview

Take a boat ride on the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia during your Tonlé Sap Lake Tour!

With Tonlé Sap Lake Tour tickets, you’ll discover a beautiful UNESCO Biosphere reserve and the largest supplier of freshwater fish for Cambodia. During the monsoon, a unique phenomenon occurs in this area of Cambodia. The swollen Mekong River forces the smaller Tonlé Sap River to reverse its water flow and fill up the Tonlé Sap Lake. This is how the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia is formed every year. Then, during the dry months, this lake mysteriously vanishes. Stop by one of the famous floating villages on the Tonlé Sap Lake, known as the Kampong Phluk village. If you like, during the rainy season you can pay the local villagers to take you on a canoe ride deep into the flooded forests.

Although the Kampong Phluk village sits on stilts, it appears to float on water once the Tonlé Sap fills up. Watch the villagers go about their daily lives. Encounter some floating pigpens and crocodile enclosures, too! For these half-day tours, you can choose whether you would like to start in the morning or the afternoon. And, on our way back, if time permits, we can also stop to visit the pagoda and lotus farm. If you’re looking for adventure, then the Tonlé Sap Lake Tour is what to do in Cambodia!
