Inside Asia Tours: Vietnam, Cambodia & Laos

Margins Of Tonle Sap

Head out by ranger boat to explore Southeast Asia's largest freshwater lake

Depart Siem Reap on a drive through the beautiful rural Cambodia to the Port of Meachrey, a small rarely-visited fishing village on the edge of the great lake. Here board our specially-designed shallow-drafted boat; originally used by park rangers, to enable you to reach the shallowest water areas and travel at speed.

Through near empty waterways with remnants of floating villages and flooded forests all around, zip across the water to the village of Preak Toal, a permanent floating settlement complete with church, schools and village stores. A hive of activity, Preak Toal is the Tone Sap's largest floating village and the jump off point for the best birdlife spotting in the region (season dependent). From here, circle out to the edge of the vast lake before stopping for a picnic lunch. Explore life unchanged for centuries on the lake and keep your eyes peeled for some of the local and migrating birdlife in this area.
