Your one-day Beng Mealea experience will begin and end in Siem Reap. Tour departs after breakfast at 8:00 a.m. with a drive northeast to Beng Mealea, Built somewhere in the mid 12th century, Beng Melea uniquely integrates Buddhism and Hinduism.  We will tour the overgrown ruins of Beng Mealea forest temple and conduct a serene walking around the site. Then Let your local guide lead you to the mystical flooded forest of Kompong Phluk by leaving the bustle of Siem Reap, and Bouncing along rural dirt roads. You’ll get the unique opportunity to watch the beautiful countryside sweep past: vibrant rice fields, working farms and a glimpse at the rural Khmer way of life that has remained largely unchanged for hundreds of years. At Kompong Phluk you will journey either by foot or boat – depending on the season’s mood – to explore the red river, placid lake and surrounding forest. Lunch is a truly special experience as a Cambodian family welcomes you into their home for a visit and a home-cooked meal.
