FLOATING VILLAGES ON TONLE SAP The most popular sightseeing for locals and international visitors after finishing temples tours is to visit a floating village. Tonle Sap Lake is the largest lake in South East Asia, covering five Cambodian provinces. Most inhabitants around Tonle Sap are fisherman who also farm in the dry season. Cambodian floating villages are different to Vietnam, Thailand and Myanmar, because in Cambodia they are built high off the ground on tall posts. From May to October the lake is flooded from the Mekong River which is the main water source for Tonle Sap. When in flood you will see the water rises up the house posts many meters. The floating village has no floating markets although pigs, chickens, gardens are commonly seen on floating pontoons. Most of the year (depending on water levels), you can have an adventure inside the Eco-forest by small boat.
PRASAT BANTEAY SREI The most beautiful, pink sandstone temple with detailed caving. Its 35 kilometers away from grand tour site. Because of its delicate carvings Banteay Srei is also known as “Lady Temple”. KBAL SPEAN Kbal Spean “Bridge Head” is 48K from Siem Reap city. At the top of the mountain there is a temple dedicated to Shiva and Vishnu built by King Survarman I and King Udayadit Yavarman II who ruled between 11th and 12th century. You will enjoy your hike if you take your time and look around. In the wet season you will see the waterfall and in summer it is easier to see the figures and depictions carved in the rocks. NOTE: A reasonable degree of fitness is needed for this hike. Dry season is easier than wet season.
