THE BARAY REACH DAK TOUR
The tour is a community social enterprise set up with the support of the APSARA National Authority and the Australian Government to protect and present the natural and cultural heritage of the Baray. It provides supplementary income to local people living in two villages north of the Baray, Phlong village and Leang Dai village. It is a perfect way to support the locals and share their knowledge; and enjoy a bit of time away from all the tourists, relaxing on a non-motorized boat!
The tour takes place in the North Baray, also called the Jayatataka. Visitors are taken on a walking and boat tour of the area, discovering the plant nursery of Preah Khan and culminating in a visit to the Neak Pean temple.
