Took a boat tour to visit the bird sanctuary, but the highlight was the boat ride and climbing up the super high treehouse instead. The birds were in my opinion too far for viewing (super long zoom lens from the treehouse), because it is said that water levels were too low to take the small boat to get closer towards... More

The tour of Prek Toal is mostly on the water and is fantastic. I saw so many birds, especially painted storks, spoonbills, eagles, egrets, etc. A special sight is a large pond of painted storks on a pond of lotuses

That area is so attractive for bird watching and there are many kind of birds over there and local people are so friendly and my clients are so enjoyed and they are so interested in co-tourism, and they offered some gifts for boat driver, area guards ( environment),etc.

If you don't want to get up early then go somewhere else! Saw the sun rise, and set on this tour. Learned about the conservation efforts done here, and how they are teaching the villagers through their children how to maintain and sustain their environment. You spend most of he day in a boat and get to see the bird... More

The various species of storks and cormorants were nesting and we were able to get within 50 feet of two huge nesting trees. The boat driver really knew what he was doing and he was great at spotting birds. We saw 26 species of birds, including the Spot-billed Pelican, Greater and Lesser Adjutants and Openbill Stork in 3 hours of... More

My sister and I did this day trip with Veasna - it was quite pricey but the price was a bit less than we thought as there were 8 people on our trip altogether. We were initially quoted $98 but ended up paying $90 (US). It was an early start, we were picked up just after 5am, and the trip... More

We were hiding in a camouflage tent waiting for the birds to come. Observing them from a distance with binoculars was an extremely amazing experience. The tour guide was helpful and friendly. This tour could be ranked as an adventure one. Worth the money!

Loved this tour. Paid a non profit to take me on it. They even provided me breakfast. The guide was extremely professional, knew all his birds and came armed with professional quality telescope and binocs. Saw sarus cranes and many other birds including waders as we went to mangroves.

Visiting the bird sanctuary is not just about bird spotting. To get there from Siem Reap involves a small boat trip across the North Eastern tip of the great Tonle Sap lake. This takes at least one hour, more if you temporarily get lost and stuck in the vast water hyacinth beds that clog the mouth of the Stang Sangker... More
