Trav Kot Lotus Lake Kayaking
30 km north-east of Siem Reap lies a new eco-tourism community named Trav Kot. The community is located next to a beautiful lake which offers stunning views of the Phnom Kulen and Phnom Bok Mountains. While your guide gets your kayaks ready, you will have the opportunity to explore this area on foot and even jump into the water for a paddle!
Once ready, hop in your kayak and enjoy a chilled paddle to the lotus field in the northern part of the lake. Here, your guide will explain the many locals uses of the lotus in Cambodia. During your journey to the lotus field, it is possible to spot some of the resident Water Buffalo that live in the area! The tour finishes some much needed relaxation in the lakeside hammocks with a few snacks and a cold drink before you will return to Siem Reap.

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 48 hours before the start of your trip, no questions asked. We offer advice on flights, visas, itineraries, hostels, backpacks, packing and more!
