After lunch and relax a bit, we’ll start our journey towards Kompong Khleang. This place is located on the northern lake-edge about 55 km east of Siem Reap town, more remote and less touristy than Kampong Pluk. During the Wet Season, we’ll take a leisurely boat ride to see the many houses that appear to float on water. We’ll see how the local villages live within a flooded community.
During the dry season, we’ll see just how local houses tower 10 meters above the land, we’ll journey around the many farms growing vegetables and cash crops within the dryer fertile soils that were previously flooded during the wet season.
