Shared Group Tour

Shared Group Tour

Our afternoon, shared group tour is a great way to experience Kompong Khleang and the Tonle Sap lake.

The tour leaves Siem Reap at 2:00pm and lasts approximately 5.5 hours. We spend about 3.0 hours traveling to and from Kompong Khleang (due to stops along the way) and 2.5 hours of time in the floating village visiting various sites. About an hour of the time in the village spent on a community tourism boat. Please keep in mind the travel duration will fluctuate based on season (water levels), weather, if we stay for sunset and traffic and road work. You can learn more about what to expect on a dry season tour here. 

Tour Stops:  The first stop is for fresh, Khmer sticky rice followed by a visit to a local bakery for handmade, palm sugar donuts. Afterwards, we take a boat to Bridge of Life’s school. At the school we will learn a bit about education and village life. We will also see traditional homes. When the water is low we take a brief walking tour of the village, meet some families and friends, and learn how community members earn a living. The remainder of time is spent on a boat navigating the Tonle Sap, visiting an ethnic Vietnamese floating village, and watching the sunset on the lake. 

Please keep in mind tours are never the same – they change based on season and conditions  – so please have some flexibility and, if you have a question about what to expect on a particular day, send us a message

The cost of the tour is $35 USD per person. It is all-inclusive and there are no additional fees. Included in this fee is is pick-up and drop-off from your hotel in an air-conditioned vehicle, an English speaking guide from Kompong Khleang, boat tickets, tourism tax, cold water, and local Khmer snacks (like sticky rice, palm sugar donuts, etc.) 

CONSIDERATIONS

Please Note:  As of April 2017, due to the high costs of transportation, we are unable to conduct the trip without a minimum of (3) guests. When booking as a solo traveler we will let you know if we expect to have enough combined bookings to conduct a tour. 

Dry Season:  As mentioned, starting around January and finishing by early June water leaves the village and the waterway slowly becomes a narrow canal. During this time we do Dry Season Floating Village Tours which slightly different from the rainy season. Instead of taking a boat and docking at the village, we take a van directly to the village and return in the van to the boat dock. From there we take the boat as usual passing through Kompong Khleang and onwards to an ethnic Vietnamese floating village to see the sunset. To learn more about the “dry season” tour please review this blog post.

Attire: Out of cultural respect (as we sometimes visit a Buddhist pagoda) we ask you to avoid certain clothes, particularly tank tops. If you don’t have appropriate clothes please let us know and we can arrange a scarf. We should also mention there is some walking during the tour so it’s a good idea to wear shoes with traction.

Children:  We enjoy having children on the tour and have reduced the price to $25 for children under 12. We also have an minimum age requirement and children (2) and under are not allowed to join our group tour but may participate in private tours.
