    What to Expect
    Onboard in the Sat Toung (the pelican in Khmer) for an unforgettable adventure of 3 days and 2 nights, discover the ancient and charming city of Udong. At night, the boat will anchor on a small arm of the river in front of a typical farm of the banks of the river. Arriving at Kampong Chhnang,  it will plunge you into the peaceful life of Cambodian provincial cities, where time seems to have slowed down.

    There, go to see, by tuk-tuk about 5 Km from the port, a village made of traditional pottery workshops sold throughout Cambodia. Then, after a hearty lunch on board, visiting the floating village of Chnok Tru in a small boat in the community will make you enjoy a different way of life. Therefore, the boat will anchor near a small floating fishing village, very far from any civilization, lost in the middle of this flooded forest ecosystem that characterizes Lake Tonle Sap. The dinner will be served with fellow travelers while listening to the cries of the birds nesting all around the boat.

    After breakfast, during which you can enjoy the specialties of organic farming Khmer, the third day will be dedicated to cross the lake to the village of Kampong Khleang. There, visit the village on huge pilings on the edge of the flooded forest and the village of Chong Khneas through the crocodile farms, homes, schools, all aquatic life in there marking the arrival in Siem Reap, gateway to the fabulous Angkor temples entry.

    It will be possible, during the low water season - the beginning of February to end of June approximately 2 weeks - after the visit of the floating village of Chnok Tru and Kompong Preas (village of a few crew members), to pass in front of the school supported by Ptea Clara ( NGO related to Phocea Mekong cruise). Then, visiting a very old temple of the 11th century, part of which, according to locals, would rise each year by several centimeters.

    After lunch, around 12:15, crossing the Tonle Sap Lake and joining Siem Reap by fast boat from the community where the boat will arrive around 18:30.

    When is no longer enough water on Lake Tonlé Sap to sail there, the Sat Toung wets in front of the floating village of Chhnok Tru. Then go on a tour of the surrounding floating villages passing by the lake with a fishing boat.

    These fishing boats (called long-tailed boats, the propeller being fixed at the end of a long transmission to navigate in a few centimeters of water) are characteristic of Tonle Sap Lake.
