Siem Reap - Tonle Sap Lake: (-/-/-)
Following your breakfast, you will be driven to Siem Reap River and Wat Athovea. Once there, you will embark on a boat trip on Tonle Sap Lake. Tonle Sap Lake is a natural reservoir that partially controls the level of water flowing into the Mekong Delta. We will visit a floating fishing village along the way. You will later return to downtown Siem Reap for lunch. This afternoon, your time will be free until your driver arrives at your hotel to bring you to Siem Reap airport.
If you wish, an ox-cart ride can be arranged for you in the village of Aranh, about 6km away from Siem Reap on the way to Tonle Sap Lake. The village is a poor community where ox-cart rides for tourists have just been arranged by the local tourism authority with the purpose of contributing some income to the local villagers. The ride will last for about 30 minutes and take you along the banks of the Siem Reap River, passing by local homes where you will learn about local people and their daily life. You will cross a small bridge to the other side of the river and end this short trip arriving at a nice rural setting and paddy-field.
