About River cruise in Siem Reap
Siem Reap river cruise is one of the best alternatives of going around Cambodia. Usually, most people take the roadway to travel from one part to another and have their whole Siem Reap experience. But the water cruises undeniably add an edge to the entire thing. There are many different Siem Reap river tours as offered by the different cruise companies across Cambodia and Vietnam. Since the two countries share a border (and more), the river cruises often cross the political boundaries owing to geographical aspects.
One of the most popular Siem Reap cruise day trip is a tour of the Lake Tonle Sap and cruising down its river streams. This trip is to take a quick look around the famous floating village of Tonle Sap. Apart from the mesmerizing experience of floating down the largest freshwater lake of south-east Asia, glimpses into the life of the local neighborhood make the experience even more enriching. The different agencies who conduct the Siem Reap lake cruise usually offer pick-up and drop services to your hotel and provide English-speaking guides to take you through the various sites, their history and significances along the cruise.
The other frequented tour is the Siem Reap Mekong cruise. Luxury boats float to and fro along the majestic Mekong between Siem Reap and Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. Many people prefer to take this route instead of the usual roadway to experience the beauty of the Cambodia river cruise in Siem Reap. There are other longer cruises as well, which take place over a stretch of anything between 7 days to 15 days. These river cruises let the tourists experience the best of both Cambodia and Vietnam. The itinerary does not include floating on the river for the entire time. There are stops and overnight stays at different places, especially at Siem Reap for the tour of Angkor.

Trip to VietnamWe had a Wonderful Tour to Cambodia and Vietnam. Our Tour Manager Sophie from bamboo Hat had arranged everything so well that we had absolutely no problem at any place. She had planned our Itinerary very meticulously considering our comforts best of the locations. Hotel provided in Cambodia was a superb experience. Hotels in Saigon and Hanoi was also very good to stay but it was more like city hotel in a busy street. Sophie you were simply excellent. Thanks for egg Coffee at Hanoi. In all you gave us our best moments. Thanks.
Trip to VietnamWe have booked our trip through Travel Triangle to visit Vietnam and Cambodia. I should say they took care of everything right from we booked out tickets to coming back to India from our trip. Megha from Travel Triangle was so helpful and available all the time. We had the best honeymoon. 1. Mekong Delta Trip In Vietnam 2. Angkor Wat temple in Siem Reap
Trip to Cambodiadriver was punctual and courteous. Tuk tuk ride in the city and great temple visit
Trip to CambodiaGuides were not of our expectations except cambodia guide and the last one on Mekong delta.. otherwise guides provided were not excellent in English and not knowing their own history very well.. Tour of Cambodia was awesome as hotel, guide, car, driver all were known their work well and were of good help.. else in Vietnam, people were little harsh and lacking punctuality.
Trip to VietnamOurs was 7 day trip to Cambodia and Vietnam. Our travel guide Sophie organised it brilliantly. She was always in touch through Whatsapp and always provided tips and responded to queries immediately. Thanks Sophie for making our trip a memorable one!! The daily tour guides were all competent and friendly. All hotels were great. The driver who picked/dropped us from/to the Siem Reap Airport was super friendly.
Trip to CambodiaTravel Triangle helped us build our package Trip to Vietnam recently through S Viet Travels. It was an Awesome experience and would love to recommend fellow pals for a similar Trip. Special Thanks to Hannah Vu for supporting thought out the Trip and making us comfortable.
Trip to CambodiaSophie from Bamboo Hat Tours organised my trip wonderfully ! I felt so safe ! Thank you !!!! Will definitely visit again ! I had a blast ! The tour guides were supper friendly and helpful ! I had no problems and found a beautiful Indian restaurant right opposite my hotel ! The country is simply beautiful
Trip to VietnamMy trip to Vietnam and Cambodia was arranged by Eric from Asia Authentic Travel. He was absolutely amazing and ensured that all pick ups and group tours are hassle free and conducted on time. The hotels were centrally located and very close to the market place, at the same time the hussle bustle of the streets did not reach the room. Eric was constantly in touch and ensured that all services are provided with minimal efforts on out part. However, the India team of Travel Triangle has much to improve (they are non-responsive and not clued into changes in the itinerary etc. and require immense follow-ups).
Trip to CambodiaWe visited Cambodia and Vietnam in the month of February 2019. In Cambodia, we visited Siem Reap & Phnom Penh. Angkor Wat is a must visit place. In Vietnam, we covered Hanoi, Halong Bay, Tam Coc and Ninh Binh. Entire tour was amazing Annie (from Insight Asia) was available all time to help us and guide us. A very big shout out to Annie.
Trip to CambodiaMy trip was good. The drivers, and guides arranged by LVP were great. Lots of Halal Food options in both Siem Reap and Phnom Penh. The tours were all private based and were well planned out. I'd choose LVP for my future tours too.

The floating village, Tonle Sap biosphere and other places around the lake and Tonle Sap River fall under the lake cruise. Mekong river cruises cover many places, depending on the tour you have picked. Siem Reap itself is a major stop, thanks to the Angkor Wat tour.
The day river tours or lake cruises can take from 3-4 hours to 6 hours. The bigger cruises, which are like tours via the waterways depend on which package you have booked. They can be anything between 4 days to a fortnight.
Siem Reap is a very nice place, and it is safe to travel alone. But, it is always better to take the necessary precautions.
