What to Expect
Enjoy a full-day excursion to the mysterious 11th-century temple of Beng Mealea in the sprawling jungle, and visit the largest floating village of Tonle Sap Lake on a combined tour from Siem Reap.

Your first stop will be the mysterious Beng Mealea Temple, thought to be a prototype for the later Angkor Wat. Covered in vines and roots of ancient trees growing through the broken galleries, the impressive “lost” temple is primarly made from sandstone and contains carvings of Buddhist motifs, along with extensive carvings of scenes from Hindu mythology.

After lunch at a local restaurant, glide along Tonle Sap Lake by boat, cruising to the floating village of Kampong Khleang or Kampong Phluk. These are some of the largest and most atmospheric settlements of the lake, where the abundant fish provide locals with their source of income. Meet some of the fishermen to learn more about their everyday lives.

En route back to Siem Reap, there will be time to stop and shop at local craft markets, where you can pick up some unique Angkor souvenirs, or gifts to take home.
