Temples and forest trails aren’t the only things Cambodia has to offer. Getting to know its people is also an enriching experience for visitors. If you’re the type who’s interested in meeting the locals, then this village tour is just the thing for you.
The floating town of Kompong Khleang is one of the rarely visited places in the country, but there is much to see within its community. Our guides and the provided transportation will take you through the local markets, letting you meet the local schoolchildren to witness their everyday life. You can even participate in distributing school supplies to the kids, as a way of supporting the local communities. After this, you get to enjoy a boat ride to explore the Khleang River and the great Tonle Sap Lake. These two places are some of Cambodia’s ecological hotspots, with lush forests and wildlife for you to see.

If you want something different other than the usual temple and jungle exploration, this is the trip to pick. Going to visit the villages and see firsthand how people live there was very educational for me.
Seeing how the locals lived their lives was an eye-opening experience for me. Definitely a refreshing change from exploring the jungles and temples of Cambodia. It’s something I’ll recommend to those who want to know more about local village life in this country.
