Beng Mealea and Kampong Khleang Tour

Tour Description

Beng Mealea

We’ll start the tour around 8:00 o’clock in the morning after you’ve had breakfast. We’ll have a quick introduction and then start the drive 60km drive out to Beng Mealea temple. This temple isn’t as popular as the temples at Angkor, but it’s definitely worth the visit. It’s known as the real jungle temple because the jungle has, quite literally, taken over. There are trees and vines growing throughout the structure of Beng Mealea.

The temple also has a fascinating history as it was built in the style of Angkor Wat and dedicated to Vishnu. It’s believed that it was built around the same time as great temple at Angkor as it features similar carvings of apsaras on the walls.

Your guide will take you through the ruins and explain the history of the temple to you. Moreover, you’ll get to explore the grounds around the temple and keep cool under the cover of the trees.

When we’ve finished exploring the temple, we’ll stop for lunch at a nearby local restaurant. You can also take the opportunity to buy a few gifts.

Kampong Khleang

After lunch, we’ll take the 50km drive to Kampong Khleang floating village which is located on the banks of the Tonle Sap lake. Kampong Khleang is one of the least visited floating villages and more remote than the others. It is also the largest of the fishing communities and around ten times the size of Kampong Phluk.

The village is a fantastic place to visit in both the rainy and the dry season. In the dry season, you’ll see the homes sitting nearly 10m in the air on top of stilts. In the rainy season, the area floods and the homes will be just a meter or two above the water level. The whole village is then “floating” on top of the Tonle Sap.

You’ll get to see how the local villagers have adapted their way of life to fit their surroundings. The whole village is on top of the water including homes, schools, clinics, and shops. You can also explore the area around the floating villages and take in the wonderful view.

When we’ve finished with Kampong Khleang, we’ll make the journey back to Siem Reap town where we will drop you back to your hotel or at any other location in Siem Reap town.
