Depending on the season, you will either row or walk through the flooded forest, and then will head up to the stilted houses of the floating village. During wet season, this area will be completely submerged, while in the dry season, the stilted houses will tower up to six meters above you. After you have toured the school and the pagoda in the center of the village, you will begin your journey back across Tonle Sap Lake to the private floating restaurant, in the heart of the floating village.

On the floating restaurant, you will enjoy a well-deserved meal and 2 cold drinks. Afterwards, you can take a seat on the viewing deck and enjoy the magnificent scenery surrounding you. At about 3:15pm you will leave the floating restaurant and head back to the port at Chong Khneas where your air-conditioned vehicle will be waiting to transport you directly home to your hotel or guesthouse.
