Beng Mealea Temple and Floating Village Day Trip from Siem Reap by Jeep
Siem Reap, Cambodia
Experience the beauty of the Cambodian countryside, the intrigue of Beng Mealea temple, and the fascinating floating village of Kampong Khleang on your full-day Jeep tour. The tour will take you off the main roads so you can experience the rugged nature and tranquility of the Cambodian countryside.
After you’re picked up in the morning from your hotel, your Jeep driver will take you to the back roads through remote villages and along rice fields as you make your way to the overgrown jungle temple, Beng Mealea.
Most of the temple’s history remains unknown, but it can be dated by its architectural style, similar to that of the Angkor Wat era. Scholars believe it was built in the 12th century. Today, much of the temple is engulfed by the natural forest surrounding the area making it a great place to explore as you discover this ancient treasure.
Stop for a lunch break.
After lunch, set off towards the Tonle Sap Lake to visit Kampong Khleang. The community is the largest on the lake with a population reaching 10,000 inhabitants. In wet season, you’ll visit the village by boat. In dry season you can drive up to the village in the jeep depending on water levels. After the floating village, you’ll make your way back to Siem Reap.
5pm: The tour will end at your hotel.
