Didn't really feel we got to see the floating villages! We just cruised past them and went onto a floating gift shop and "crocodile farm" where children floating in polystyrene boxes holding snakes tried to get a dollar from you! We wished we had not...More

Firstly, based on reviews here I guess the success or otherwise it's down to how/who you use to organise your visit through. Our trip here was whilst on a 10 day overland tour from Bangkok to Ho Chi Minh so our tour company provided guide...More

We went with our tuk tuk driver and we were asked to pay 25 dollars each, but the ticket didn't have a stated price, it could have been anything. The river towards the lake was full of trash and noisy with uncontrolled boat circulation. Once...More

Such an important part of Cambodian culture Tonle Sap is enormous - even in the dry season! Home to so much wildlife (although almost inevitably some is disappearing from this habitat.) The stilted village is incredible when the water levels are low. We started in...More

This is a money-making tourist trap, but it is still interesting to visit. I told my guide NOT to take me to a fish farm (probably another money trap) and instead visited a school run by the Catholic Church, where I learned that nearly all...More

This is a real tourist trap, however seeing the floating village is interesting. The crocodile farm is a little sad, as these huge creatures are in such a tiny space. The locals are inclined to pester you, understandable as it is, it becomes annoying.

The sunset on Tonle sap lake is very nice.. but the tourism is not very good in cambodia .. you should take water and something to eat in your bag.. because the restaurants are not very clean..

We were on a private tour with Indo-China Services but another couple we chatted with hired a tuk-tuk driver (I would prefer a cab-the road is dusty) and then they purchased there tickets at the lake for the boat.

We did see a few boy monks cutting grass but no-one approached us asking to donate rice .... imo, if you did want to donate to the monks, then let your guide know and they will happily help you to do this :-)
