We will take you at your hotel and drive about 15 km southeast of Siem Reap to reach the temples of the Roluos group, a collection of monuments representing the remains of Hariharalaya, the first major capital of the Angkorian-era Khmer Empire. The Angkor period was inaugurating in 802 with the establishment of the first capital on Phnom Kulen by king Jayavarman II. Nearly 50 years after, he moved the capital to Hariharalaya, probably for defensive reasons. Four successive kings reigned at this site for over 70 years before Yasovarman built Phnom Bakheng and moved the capital to the Angkor area in 905. We will visit the three main temples of this site, Prasat Bakong, the oldest temple mountain of the Angkor-era, Prasat Preah Ko, with beautiful preserved carvings and Prasat Lolei, 4 tours built in the middle of a now dry baray. 
Then we will go to the fishermen’s village of Kompong PhlukCambodia great lakeenjoy tonlesap day tour. During the dry season (February to August), the village can be reach by car or motorbike, as the – bumpy - road that is normally flooded dries up. During the rainy season, a short boat ride from the Roluos village, through the wetland area will take you to Kompong Phluk. Kompong Phluk is not a floating village but a village on stilts and in spite of fishing is often the privilege of the Vietnamese minority, the inhabitants of Kompong Phluk are almost exclusively of Khmer origin. The villagers frequently move from house to another house. During the rainy season, they live in the house on stilts and move to small huts near the waterfront during the dry season. 
As we will arrive at the village at about Noon, we will enjoy a nice lunch from fresh local fish, shrimps and vegetables prepared by the local women. Then, we will visit the village, the pagoda on the only butte (the only building which is not on stilts) and see the activities of the villagers before doing a traditional boat cruise. Small canoes, paddle by villagers, will take you deep into the dense flooded forest. The trees of this forest are perfectly adapted to their unusual existence as they are completely submerged a part of the year. 

In the afternoon, a boat will take us on the big Tonle Sap lake, passing through the floating village of Chong Khneas to reach the boat dock, south of Siem Reap. We will still climb the Phnom Krom hill to visit the three old towers dedicated to Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma respectively and enjoy the sunset view of the Tonle Sap. Then we will drive you back to your hotel. End excursion tour to tonle sap lake.
