Here your guide will give you information about the hydrology of the area and useful plants for medicine and cooking. Learn about local activities of fishermen, unique human adaptations and the amazing ecosystem of the Tonle Sap Lake.
Immerse yourself in the experience of sleeping in a local house in this fishing community. Share the daily life of the host family and enjoy the delicious Cambodian fish.
The following morning you will go for a walk around the village, allowing you to meet local people, visit the village market, primary school and pagoda and see the streets activities (boat repairing, making fishing traps, fish processing…)
Then, visit other part of the village where villagers grow cat fish ‘’trey pra’’ and black fish ‘’treyras’’’and ‘’trey ondeng’’.
Back at the house, take time to prepare traditional Cambodian dishes with your host family. Take advantage of the serenity of the village and relax in one of the hammocks.
