The temples of Angkor should be enough to keep anyone busy for weeks, but if archeology fatigue sets in you might be ready for a change of scene. Hire a driver to take you out for a day into the dreamy realm of landscapes outside Siem Reap and discover what Cambodia is all about. Otherwise, head down towards the water and the mystical floating villages of the Tonle Sap.

Day Trips from Angkor

Tonle Sap Tour

Terre Cambodge runs half-day tours on teak sampan boats of the Tonle Sap lake. The trips include a stop at the Prek Toal bird sanctuary, where you can see exotic birds like the black-headed ibis, painted stork, and rare Asian kingfisher. Longer excursions (up to ten days) on the lake are also available. Book in advance to secure complimentary, round-trip transportation from your hotel to the lake.
