    This trip was one of the highlights of our vacation and my family and I highly recommend this experience for anyone who wants to see how Cambodians are living outside of the main tourist areas. The village is stunning and green era travel was perfect. Our guide choub and driver Channa were very professional, kind and knowledgeable. I learned a lot about Cambodian history and how the locals are living. There was no question that went unanswered. We were picked up at our hotel on time, we drove out to the village and walked through for a bit. We stopped and had some local smoked fish and then continued to our boat. We road along the river until we got to the lake and floated there for a while as we watched the sun go down. After the boat trip ended we were dropped at the restaurant we wanted to go to. No hussle, no messing us about. Transportation, a unique village and a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Exactly what we wanted.

    I went with my sister for the tour and we had an amazing time. Both our driver Vong and our tour guide Nak were amazing to deal with. I’ve learned so much about the history of Cambodia and we learned all about the local people and their customs. It was great to meet the local people and Nak was very helpful when we had any questions or if we needed anything he was always very happy to assist. It was especially great to get the tour from Nak as he is a local of the village and grew up there. I would definitely recommend this tour for everyone as it’s very informative and very interesting. I would come back again during wet season just so I could see the water levels when they are high too. 10/10

    Sehr interessanter Ausflug! Besonders wenn man mehr über das Leben der Einheimischen erfahren möchte. Der Tourguide war sehr freundlich und hat uns viel über die Kultur der Kmehr erzählt.

    Natürlicherweise ist im März die Trockenzeit weit fortgeschritten und daher der Tonle Sap See in seiner größten Ausdehnung in der Regenzeit nur zu erahnen. Andererseits kamen die tatsächliche Höhe der Stelzenhäuser und die Lebensbedingungen der Einwohner von Kampong Khleang sehr gut zu Tage. Besonders Nak, unser Guide, hat es dabei verstanden uns mit viel Empathie die Lebensbedingungen der Bevölkerung näher zu bringen. Er blieb uns keine Antwort auf unsere Fragen hinsichtlich Wirtschaft, Landwirtschaft, Kultur, Buddhismus oder Schulwesen schuldig. Wir bekamen von ihm im Klassenraum der Schule sogar Khmer-sprachlichen "Privatunterricht". Sehr zur Freude der schon anwesenden Schüler. Schulunterricht fand zur Zeit unseres Besuchs der Schule nicht statt, da die Morgenklassen von 7 bis 11 stattfinden und der Nachmittagsunterricht für die nächste Jahrgangsstufe ab 13 Uhr beginnt. Würde jede Tour den Unterricht stören kamen die Kinder auch nicht mehr zum Lernen. Nak ist auf alle unsere Fragen und Wünsche eingegangen und hat uns auch so manches über das übliche hinaus gezeigt/erklärt. Besonders seine Empfehlung hinsichtlich des Mittagessens war ein sehr gelungenes Erlebnis. Wenn man etwas über Land und Leute kennenzulernen möchte ist diese Tour das richtige und Nak als Guide mit Herz und Seele dabei. Sehr empfehlenswert
