    I was thinking about methods of getting from Siem Reap - Kompong Cham or Phnom Penh. Would taking a boat from the NW to the SE of Lake Tonle Sap be an option? If so, how much could I expect to pay, and how much would time would it add to the journey?

    Any advice much appreciated.

    Hi TomHK,

    A few us volunteering in Siem Reap late last year, took a boat trip to Tonle Sap Lake and I believe it cost us each $10.00. It was unbelievable. Expect to spend the full day. We left old market at around 7:00AM and got back around 8:45PM.

    Hope this helps...have fun!!

    Awesome, Thanks.

    Do you know of any boat trips that go from on end of the lark to the other though? I was thinking of maybe combining seeing the lake with using it as a mode of transport (on my way to KC and eventually the NE).

    I'm not sure what you mean Tom as DeadPoet has confused me :)
    You want to get from PP to Siem Reap by boat right? There is/was a boat that left every other day from PP, never used it, never spoken to anyone who has..

    Hey Sparts,


    The village we went to was Kampong Khleang. We had to switched boat a few times before we finally arrived. It was great! We even took a swim in the lake :)
