Tonle Sap Homestay
When you arrive in the remote village of Kampong Khleang, you’ll be welcomed by your host family. The scattering of houses in the village are built on stilts, one of these will be your home for the night. You won’t find hot water or a shower here – it’s very basic stuff. If you’re travelling in dry season (Jan-Apr) you can expect the water levels to be much lower. Your homestay is located on the floodplain so it won’t be directly on the water during these months. You’ll still have the same great experience and the activities will be the same, giving you an insight into local life.
You’ll take a trip out onto the lake, as the sun begins to sink over the stilted houses of Tonle Sap, the largest lake in Southeast Asia. Afterwards, you’ll help the family prepare dinner, learn about Khmer cuisine and settle down for an early night in your own stilted house, surrounded by the sounds of life on the lake. The next morning, you’ll be up before the sun in order to set off with the local fisherman before waving goodbye to your host family and leaving Kampong Khleang behind.
