Floating Village Sunset Boat Trip
This tour runs on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays from 2:30pm – 7pm.
Head out to Mey Chrey, one of Siem Reap’s little known floating villages for a peak at local life. The journey to the dock takes around 45 minutes and will give you the chance to experience some of the beautiful Cambodian countryside.
Upon arriving at the dock, you will enjoy a relaxing motorboat ride through the waterways for around 30 minutes. When you arrive at the village, there will be the opportunity to disembark and meet the local communities that call Mey Chrey home. Using your guide as your translator, you can get to know the families that live here and find out more about their way of life. One thing is certain, life on land is very different to life on the water!
After you have met some members of the community, you will return to the boat before heading out to Tonle Sap Lake, which is South East Asia’s largest inland lake! The tour will culminate with an opportunity to watch the Cambodian sunset over the floating houses, a spectacular end to an off the beaten track experience that you are sure to remember forever!
