Depart to The Tonle Sap lake one of the world most productive bodies of fresh water. In the wet season, the Tonle Sap Lake swells to 12,000 km². During the dry half of the year, the lake shrinks to as small as 2500 km², draining into the Tonle Sap River. Each year, millions of fish come to spawn in the seasonally flooded forest surrounding the lake, attracting a myriad of water birds as well as people, who have settled in villages along the shores and who live with the rhythm of the water. This ecosystem was classified as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1997.

Take a boat trip around the lake to visit Kompong Phluk village with its houses standing on stilts and board a piroqua to discover the seasonally flooded forest and get a taste for life ruled by monsoonal rains and water-based agriculture.
