Sunset Dinner on the Tonle Sap Lake and Phare Cambodian Circus
3:30pm - 9pm
The best way to experience the sunset over the floating village on Tonle Sap Lake, this unique River Boat tour is great for families, groups or single travelers. Experience the floating villages and then relax at the Taras floating restaurant, with unrivaled views while you watch the sunset in style while enjoying the inclusive buffet meal and unlimited drinks. After dinner you will be transported to Phare : The Cambodian Circus and seated in section A, B or C (Please state desired seating section on booking). With hotel pickup and drop-off by a professional guide, this is a hassle free way to enjoy this special tour.
The tour will begin at 3:30pm, when you will be picked up from your hotel or guesthouse in an air-conditioned vehicle. Your friendly and knowledgeable tour guides speak English (and Khmer of course), and they will ensure that you enjoy your tour, pointing out areas of local interest along the way and answering any questions you may have. It takes about 20 minutes to reach the port of Chong Khneas.
On route to your private floating restaurant, in the heart of the floating village, you will make three stops. First, you will pass rice paddies and lotus fields (please note depending on the time of year the view of the Lotus and rice fields will vary) and will have an opportunity to stop and take some photos of the lotus flowers which are a deeply important flower in Buddhism. You will then stop at the stilted houses just before the lake to see how the water levels effect the way people live and see a floating school. The third stop will be the Crocodile and Fish Farm at Chong Khneas (dependent on current water levels) where you will learn about some of the trades people on the lake work in. If catfish, crocodiles and large snakes don't interest you, there is a souvenir shop and a viewing deck on board for you to purchase some presents for loved ones or take a few photos.
The boat ride through Chong Khneas will allow you to see ordinary Cambodians going about their daily life in the floating village. Fishermen, boat-makers, markets, schools, spirit houses and waving children are always in plentiful supply on this mesmerizing scenic route, and it is not uncommon for the scenery of Chong Khneas to provoke silence on the small boat, as customers take in the sights and sounds that surround them. Once the trip through Chong Khneas is complete, your boat will briefly enter the edge of the great lake before docking with your private floating restaurant, in the heart of the floating village, with unrivaled views of the floating village and the best place to watch the sunset.
There you will enjoy a well deserved meal and all you can drink cocktails/beers/spirits etc. Afterward, you can take a seat on the viewing deck and enjoy the magnificent scenery. If the weather is good, you will get a first class view of a spectacular sunset, the likes of which you will never forget. Even if there isn’t a sunset, the magnificent and unique cloud linings that form above the great lake are always a spectacle to behold. At about 6:45pm you’ll leave the restaurant and head back to the port at Chong Khneas, where your air-conditioned vehicle will be waiting to transport you directly to Phare : The Cambodian Circus, where you will watch the show from Section A, B or C (please state desired seating section on booking). After the show your air-conditioned vehicle will be waiting to transport you home, to your hotel or guesthouse.
