VISIT THE TONLE SAP RIVER
The Kompong Luong floating village is the product of one man’s vision and the collective endeavour of the entire community. Situated in the southern section of Tonle Sap lake in Pursat province, this is one of the most intriguing parts in Cambodia. Here, you will experience how the community adapts in their environment. You will have the chance to visit two very different villages, a Vietnamese village and a Khmer village, working together in harmony. Come and visit this amazing place where nature helps heal wounds of the past. And where people have an incredible respect and appreciation for the environment.
Located in the mountains of Bokor National Park, Prek Thnout offers a great scenery to its visitors. Tourists can follow the boardwalk of the mangrove forests to one of the waterfalls or do a guided walk to learn about the environment, traditional ceremonies and food cooked by local people. Fireflies often appear during the night which makes the atmosphere even more special. There is also the opportunity to learn more about non-timber-forest-products like rattan or bamboo which are grown in Kampot Province.
Community First: Kompong Khleang Floating Village Tours is a not-for-proft tour company benefitting Bridge of Life School, an NGO operating in Siem Reap and Kompong Thom Provinces. Their mission is to connect tourists to Kompong Khleang, a floating village on the Tonle Sap, in a responsible and meaningful way by both seeing the sites and learning about the community. The tours are unique because they are based in the community, run by local residents, and all profits are reinvested in Cambodian communities via educational programming - hence the name "Community First".
Prek Toal is a bird sanctuary and Ramsar site located within the Tonlé Sap Biosphere Reserve, at the north-west corner of the Tonlé Sap. It is a popular area for ecotourism and birdwatching given the area's rich biodiversity and rare waterbirds, particularly abundant during the dry season. There are several organisations and projects operating in the area, so plenty to do and choose from.
We may be biased, but we reckon that whatever your age, whatever your life experience and whatever the purpose, duration or type of vacation you imagined, sustainable tourism in the Kingdom of Wonder might just change the way you travel forever. With a range of homestays and carefully selected ecotourism sites in beautiful locations throughout Cambodia, there is something for every style and taste.
