A floating village on stilts. Utterly amazing to see local children playing in the water using old plastic wash hand basins as "boats" and small branches as paddles. We sailed past many a floating house which was also used for plying a trade. Boarded one of the larger "structures" and was astonished to find a family of crocodiles.

We were picked up at our hostel and were taken through the itinerary for the afternoon by our tour guide who grew up in the floating village. First we stopped off to try bamboo sticky rice, then stopped at a local bakery to try donuts and other sweet treats. The floating village was very eye-opening and a boat trip along the river was great! Would definitely recommend as you are shown how the money you give is invested into the village. The price of the ticket is all inclusive, no hidden costs.

We enjoyed the tour with tasting stops along the way. It was inspiring to learn of the work being done there with educating the children. Hopefully the cycle of life experienced in the village can be improved. The teaching is done under very difficult conditions with the continuous sound of motors from the boats in the river. Sunny was a great guide, knowledgeable and with excellent English. Also a good sense of humor. Going in the dry season gave us the opportunity to walk amongst the villagers and they greeted us warmly. The only down side due to dry season conditions was the extremely slow river trip to the lake -and back! Communications with Eddie was easy and he responded promptly. Well worth doing this trip to see another side of Cambodia and learn more about the culture and hardships of daily life. I’m in awe of Cambodians. They have so little but they are so kind and happy.

It is definitely a great tour. Eric is super communicator and replied all my emails. We are 2 families and had a private tour with Phallis as our your guide. What a great opportunity we are visit the village by foot. We saw local residents daily life. The children are friendly and helpful be a family helper. We also saw the morning/mid day fisherman selling seafoods from the boats. The house is imaging tall and surprising the fair sanitation system in the village. Quite pleasant to walk. The school is simple. Wish the local children will learn well. In return we gave few story books and color pencils to the school. Phallis share the local life knowledge to us.

Booked this to do something different other than viewing temples! So glad we did, our tour guide Sonny was great, good English, amazing facts and also knew so much about the local village and school. It was a very insightful day and really made me appreciate what I have at home and my life much more because the villagers were very happy with the little that they have. Although this tour is a little pricey, all the money goes back into the school to fund lessons and equipment and it shows as the school was great. Overall, I highly recommend this tour if you're looking for an alternative thing to do in Siem reap !
