Tonle Sap Lake, Siem Reap

Categories: Bodies of Water, Nature & Parks
Inspirock Rating:
1/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web
Discover the vast seasonally inundated Tonle Sap Lake, which remains one of country's most important sources of food. Situated in the Cambodian floodplain--a geological depression--the lake gets replenished by the Mekong River and shelters an abundance of natural and agricultural habitats. Rent a boat ride to travel across the lake and experience the beauty of floating villages and natural havens. Many tour operators try to exploit tourists by "demanding money to feed the hungry," but you can easily avoid this by purchasing food yourself and donating it to the poor directly. For Tonle Sap Lake and beyond, use our Siem Reap vacation generator to get the most from your Siem Reap vacation.
