Take a car or tuk tuk to the boat landing on Tonle Sap lake. The road journey gives a flavour of rural Cambodia with palm thatched houses on stilts and rice paddies. The boat trip (about $10)takes you out onto Tonle Sap where the fishermen live on floating houses which are moved to follow the water as the lake shrinks during the dry season to one quarter of its wet season size. Everything floats, houses, schools, a church, pigs and vegetable patches on their own little rafts and Vietnamese children paddling frantically in bathtubs!
My own preference is to take a local guide and driver so that you can combine the boat trip with other visits such as the silk farm.
