The Hanuman team recently ventured to the floating village and flooded forests of Me Chrey to test paddle a new kayaking experience.

Me Chrey is one of the smaller floating villages on the great Tonle Sap Lake and sees very few tourists compared to the much busier Chong Kneas, offering a more scenic and natural alternative. The village moves with the water level and is prettier during the green season, when the houses are anchored around an island pagoda.

The Hanuman team recently ventured out to Me Chrey, a scenic 25 km drive from Siem Reap, to test out a great new kayaking tour which explores the vast flooded forest in the area. Expert kayak guides led us through the shady flooded forest, spotting rare bird life, enjoying the tranquil surroundings and meeting the friendly locals.

We recommend a half day in the morning or afternoon. Enjoy slightly cooler temperatures and a better chance of spotting rare bird-life in the mornings, or bask in the warm evening light and take in a Tonle Sap sunset on the afternoon tour.

No kayaking experience required!
