I have mixed feelings about this trip. I thought the ride down from Siem Reap was interesting and the dust in the road wasn't an issue since the we were in a closed car rather than a TukTuk. The loading section, ticket area was disorganized....More

My hotel recommended the lake/river cruise to me, telling me it cost $20 for a ticket. My first red flag should have been when they charged me $30, and the family next to me were being charged a different amount again. However after a hot,...More

Loved hearing about how this Lake grows every year, flooding a huge area. Was a little less enthusiastic when our boat driver handed over control of the boat to a boy who looked about 7. Having said that he seemed to know what he was...More

The trip around the Tonle Sap lake was interesting as we saw the floating villages. The lake is immense! When we came back to port, we came through an area where floating homes were packed closely, homes were just one big room. People were washing...More
