What we say:
Just to the north of the new bridge a cluster of boats is moored. This is where the ferries to Siem Reap depart, but you can also hire one of the smaller wooden boats just to explore the river.
Rates are around $4-5 per hour depending on your bargaining ability. The river in both directions weaves through stunning rural scenery. Admittedly if you come from Siem Reap by boat you will have seen much of it already, but seeing it from the comfort of a small wooden boat rather than an overloaded death trap is far more enjoyable.
