An unexpected and wonderful side trip while in Siem Reap. A trip through the countryside to this unspoiled wetland area was well worth it. Thanks to guide Sam, who did a great job of explaining the initiatives being taken to preserve this beautiful area for generations to enjoy. We went at sunset and it was just LOVELY. Highly recommend.

This is a Cambodian Hidden Gem, Special for birds and nature lovers, especially at Sunrise time, thousands of birds flying away from the sleeping nest for another day diet. We love this Pearaing Biodiversity Conservation Centre.
