Roluos Group by Electric Scooter & Boat Trip at Kampong Phluk
Spend a fun day exploring the stunning Angkor scenery, ancient temples and a floating village by local boats and eco-friendly electric scooter.
After a short briefing, start up your electric scooter and drive out of the town into the countryside passing by small rural villages and old temples. Take a break at an ancient reservoir and enjoy a refreshing drink. Stop for a while to explore Prei Monti, a small 9th century temple nestled among trees. As this is off the usual tourist trail you may well have the entire temple to yourselves.Continue driving through the east and southeast gates of Bakong Temple to a local open-air market.
Another vehicle will then take you to Kampong Phluk, a floating village built on wooden stilts over the Tonle Sap. After lunch in a floating restaurant cruise through the village to gain an insight into the lifestyle of the local people who make a living from the lake. Paddle among the submerged trees in the flooded mangrove forests keeping an eye open for fish, crabs and water birds.
Finally visit the three temples that make up the Roluos Group. These are some of the earliest great temples and mark the beginning of the classical period of Khmer civilisation. They date from the late 9th century when they served as the capital of Indravarman. Bakong Temple is the largest of the three and is home to an active Buddhist monastery. Preah Ko Temple, also known as Sacred Bull, features Sanskrit inscriptions on the doorsteps of each temple. In Lolei Temple photograph the beautiful sandstone carvings in the niches and the Sanskrit inscriptions on the doorposts.
After exploring the three temples return to your hotel.
