The Tonle Sap is called the 'great lake' and is one of the two main topographical features of Cambodia. During the rainy season it can swell from 3,000 square kilometres to 7500 square kilometres. Tonle Sap is also one of the world’s richest sources of freshwater fish. We will drive 30 minutes to the departure point at Kampong Phluk village and cruise along a canal, past floating villages complete with schools, restaurants and even a hospital. See fishing nets being mended, children swimming and playing, floating pigpens and even crocodile enclosures.
We continue through a section of mangroves and out onto the massive lake, past local fishermen and an amazing array of boats where we will stop at a floating fish and crocodile farm. The roof of this structure makes an excellent spot to take photos of the lake and the surrounding area. This journey provides a truly amazing look into a remarkable way of life.
