This morning explore Mechrey “floating village” by boat, cruising past a floating school, farms and houses in this water-borne community. Amidst the greetings of friendly locals, glimpse the genuine lake culture of Cambodia and the traditional family lifestyle.
Then visit a local pagoda, chat with the monks to learn more about Buddhism in Cambodia, and participate in a good luck blessing ceremony. The monks will chant blessings, sprinkle holy water on you, and fasten a sacred bracelet around your wrist, said to protect you from any evil spirits or accidents, and sure to be a tangible reminder of your Cambodia travels after you arrive home.
You will be free for the rest of the afternoon, and in the evening enjoy a performance from PHARE. The Cambodian Circus has long been famous, and this NGO teaching street kids to become circus artists is a regular at international circus conventions worldwide. Enjoy their creative interpretations of modern life and issues in Cambodian society.

In dry season (Mar-Sep), when the water is low clients will visit Chong Kneas floating village instead.
