I had a great time to swim there. Surrounding by big trees. If you wish to have something to eat there, you have two choices, one is pack your lunch from the town and the second one is order foods from local people there.

This is the roundest lake I've ever seen! It is maybe 700 meters across and takes about an hour to walk [leisurely] around on a wide and well worn path. The lake is very popular with local Khmer folks as well as tourists, but very...More
