The soul of the Khmer people is born from the ancient civilization that unifies our kingdom, but the heart of our people resides in the rice fields, the great Tonle Sap Lake and the storied Mekong River. We are, despite the development of the cities of Phnom Penh, Battambang and our own Siem Reap, a people of the land.
In this tour we will leave the hotel at 7:30am and take about 25mn to reach the village to see a wonderful daily life of our people in the countryside.
We will visit a fish farm which mirrors the ponds left by the retreating waters of Tonle Sap Lake at the end of the rainy season. The natural migration of fish from the lake as the rice fields begin to flood in June provides an amazing variety of shrimp, crab, eels and other fish many miles from the lake when the waters recede as the dry season takes hold. Crocodile farms have also been developed and now provide skins for shoes and other clothing that are sold around the world. And if you ever wondered what crocodile meat tastes like, that can be arranged…and it is quite tasty!
