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! 


  • Leave Siem Reap
  • Stop at the Puok Market to buy snacks for your journey
  • Journey to the dock before boarding the motorboat which will take you to the floating village
  • Meet a local family
  • Learn about the way of life in the floating village

Why Book With Us?

Hi, I’m Nikki and I started South East Asia Backpacker in 2008 after my own first solo backpacking trip! My vision was to create a travel diary for everyone, a place for travellers to share their experiences from the road. After backpacking and writing about Southeast Asia for over 10 years, I saw the opportunity to provide backpackers with the kind of experiences that I’d treasured myself in the region! 

Today, there is so much choice, but there are a lot of poor-quality tours and companies that offer mediocre experiences with little care for the environment. I wanted to create a selection of the best tours and activities to help backpackers avoid scams and dodgy tour companies.

Today, I run this website with my partner, Dave, from Spain, where we live with our energetic two-year-old daughter, Evie. All of the bookable activities that you will find on this website have been vetted by a member of our team and we have a friendly relationship with the operator. There are real humans behind South East Asia Backpacker and we are passionate about sustainable travel and development in Southeast Asia.

We are committed to helping travellers at every stage of the journey and understand that plans can change which is why we offer a full discount on the deposit up to 72 hours before the start of your trip, no questions asked. We offer advice on flights, visas, itineraries, hostels, backpacks, packing and more!

If you have any questions about our business or any of the tours that we provide, feel free to contact me on Whatsapp.

  1. Very nice tour where we got picked up at our hotel in a minibus. On the way we stopped at a market where our guide Sokha Kim bought some local snacks for us. Kim did a very good job and were very good at English. When we got to the floating village by boat the people looked very happy. We also stopped and visited a family in their house to see and learn about their lifestyle. Some of our money go to the village to support them.

  2. I really enjoyed the tour which I only decided to do because I read that this particular village benefits from our visit unlike the other floating villages. It was very interesting and scenic! The people who live there seemed happy to have us and our driver, Denny, was really friendly. The man who served as our guide and who works for the tour company was quite indifferent and just recited facts at certain times whether people were able to hear or even aware that he was speaking. When the tour ended I handed the guide a tip and said thank you. The driver thanked me but the guide ignored the tip and told me I had to pay. I told him I already paid and he just stood there staring at me. I told him I already paid again and he got in the van and left. Whatever

  3. Had a great tour with a really good guide who told us a lot about Cambodia and the floating village. The sunset with some snacks was the best ending. Will always remember the day. Thanks a lot.
