The best way to experience the sunset over the floating villages on the Tonle Sap Lake (Lonely Planets), this unique River Boat cruise tour is great for families, couples, groups or single travelers. Experience the Floating fishing Villages and cruising past the flooded forests, then relax  onboard the famous Queen Tara Riverboat, the biggest boat on the lake, (ex cargo vessel ) We felt having a relaxing meal and drinks on a 100 year old ex cargo boat while watching a magnificent sunset over the largest fresh water lake in SE Asia,was the prefect end to any day. (Angelina)  where you will enjoy our buffet of both Asian and Western foods and all you can drink open bar, wines, champagne,cold beers, cocktails, spirits and soft drinks.

The Queen Tara Boat Sunset cruise tour will begin at 3:30pm, when we pick you up from your Hotel or Guesthouse in an air-conditioned vehicle. Our friendly and knowledgeable tour guides speak English (and Khmer of course) and they will ensure that you enjoy your tour, pointing out areas of local interest along the way and answering any questions you may have. On route to the port  we will have an opportunity to stop and take some photos of the lotus flowers (seasonal) which are a deeply important flower in Buddhism. Upon arrival at the port you will exit the vehicle and board one of our mini Tara Boats. The mini Tara Boat,that are the traditional long tail type (we build all our own boats using expert boat builders from the villages) will be driven by an experienced and safe local driver and life jackets are available on every vessel we operate.

Once on the water we will stop at the floating Crocodile & Fish Farm to learn about some of the trades people on the life work in. If catfish and crocodiles don’t interest you, there is a souvenir shop and a viewing deck on board for you to purchase some presents for loved ones or take a few photos.

The boat ride through the floating village will allow you to see ordinary Cambodians going about their daily life. Fishermen, boat-makers, markets, schools, spirit houses and waving children are always in plentiful supply on this mesmerizing scenic route, and it is not uncommon for the scenery to provoke silence on the Mini Tara, as guests take in the sights and sounds that surround them. Once the trip through the floating village is complete, your boat will dock with the Queen Tara Riverboat, the Biggest boat on the Tonle Sap Lake with unrivaled views of the floating villages, flooded forests and of course the best place to watch the sunset.

There you will enjoy a well-deserved buffet meal(or fixed menu) and all you can drink including Cocktails,beers,wines, spirits,soft drinks for free. Afterwards you can lie back in a hammock, take a seat on the viewing deck or get your photo taken at the steering wheel. Watch as other tour groups drive past on their rickety little boats whilst you chill out, relax, and enjoy the comfort & luxury of the biggest boat on the lake. And if the weather is good, you will get a first class view of a spectacular sunset, the likes of which you will never forget. Even if there isn’t a sunset, the magnificent & unique cloud linings that form above the great lake are always a spectacle to behold. At about 6:45pm you’ll leave the Queen Tara and head back to the port where your air-conditioned vehicle will be waiting to transport you directly home to your Hotel or Guesthouse.

 Please note:

The Queen Tara is  in a prime location at the entrance of The Great Tonle Sap Lake. It is Siem Reap’s biggest floating restaurant and bar with a fascinating history served as a cargo boat for the lake community.

Now lovingly restored, ( did you know the Queen Tara Riverboat is almost 100 years old) it is ideally positioned to enjoy the best views of the sunset over the lake and the nearby floating villages.
