What to Expect
Begin your evening with pickup from your Siem Reap hotel for the roughy 20-minute journey to the port at Phnom Krom. After boarding a small boat, admire the scenery as you pass by lotus fields and lush rice paddies. You’ll also visit a fish and crocodile farm to learn about traditional fishing practices. Continue to Chong Khneas and learn about local life on the lake as you sail around the homes, markets, schools, and spirit houses of the floating village. Finally, arrive at the Queen Tara, a floating restaurant, where dinner and cocktails will be served as you watch the sun set over the lake. After dinner, transfer back to the port by small boat, where a driver will be waiting to take you back to your Siem Reap hotel.

Prompt pick up from my hotel. Stopped at a lotus farm, very pretty. Made our way to the small boat and started the tour through the lake. Eye opening to see how these people live in this floating village. Finally, onto the Tara boat where we were warmly welcomed and were

It was utterly unacceptable service. Firstly, the tour guide was not courteous nor respectable towards us. His attitude and behaviour towards us was borderline disrespect able. We were running late from a previous excursion. We rang ahead to our hotel, letting them know our

yes i know what happened,actually we where spot on time,at your hotel, but we had other guests to pick up,when you are running late it puts our program out and we like to pick up on time,regardless the tour guide than went to pick up other guests and return to your hotel,so no we where not late at all,we received no notification from your hotel or any one else that you where running late, we normally pick up in mini vans or cars but as you where running late we where forced to use a mini bus and yes the police do have some street closed to the mini buses at night, i will chat to our guides but they do try hard to accomadate everyone,and most people thankfully are on time and enjoy the tour
