Begin your adventure with pickup from your Siem Reap hotel for a roughly 20-minute journey to the port at Phnom Krom. Set sail aboard a small boat and admire the scenery as you glide by lotus fields and lush rice paddies, and visit a fish and crocodile farm to learn more about traditional fishing practices.

Continue to Chong Khneas and learn about local life on the lake as you sail around the homes, markets, schools, and spirit houses of the floating village. Finally, arrive at the Queen Tara, a floating restaurant, where lunch will be served as you gaze out over the lake.

After lunch, transfer back to Chong Khneas port by small boat, where a driver will be waiting to take you back to your Siem Reap hotel.
