Inside Vietnam: Cambodia Laos

Tonlé Sap

Take a break from temples to explore the great Tonlé Sap, Southeast Asia's largest lake.

On your last morning in Cambodia you have the opportunity to learn about life on the lake. Tonlé Sap is Southeast Asia's largest freshwater lake - its size varying greatly depending on the time of year, as it swells to about four times its size in during the wet season.

You will board a handcrafted wooden boat and visit a small local village, where you'll see stilt houses that tower above the water in dry season but barely top the waves in wet season. On the way, you will pass floating markets and impressive flooded forests, giving you a taste of life on the water.
