Very cool experience! Our guide Allu (+62085240488671) was great. He welcomed us into his home for tea and helped arrange a tour of the floating village. We spent the afternoon eating mindblowingly good fried bananas and watching the birds. Highly recommend!

On the way from senkang center to some floating houses on the lake, you can see a large variaty of birds. The floating houses are very nice to visit. We ate some nice pisang goreng there, and on the way back to Senkang, you can experience a beautiful sunset,

We were a group of 8 plus guide that went with motored canoes down Walanae River to Tempe Lake. It was a cool and refreshing ride. I loved the mosque built on the water as well as all the stilt houses along the river. There were several birds to observe on the water. At the Tempe Lake we visited a floating village. Our guide arrange to have tea and banana fritters in one of the homes. It was soothing and calm to be away from the city. On the return trip we were treated to a colorful sunset. It was a big treat to be able to do this canoe ride. I highly recommend it.

Many opportunities to picture birds during the boat trip, also children rowing and playing in the river at Sengkang, but I do not enjoy peeping at the daily life of the landless people pushed out to live in floating houses, to call them somehow, although I understand they do this for supplementing their incomes, which we aere happy to collaborate to.

Ask your hotel staff if they can arrange a local fishermen with a boat to bring you to this incredible big lake. Will cost around 13-16 EUR plus small tip in case your captain is nice. Coffee, Tea and fried bananas in a floating House if you want, don't be shy! Incrdeible large floating gardens for vegetables. Very nice People in the alle ans in town! In Case you like birds I recommend to take more time on the lake as we saw ~15 different birds without a focus on it.

We had a sunset lake cruise, and had tea at the floating house. It was very nice and beautiful, but it was very touristic, didn't see the ' locals'

Yes, it is nice to see lots of palm trees in a lake, the lake is quite large, so it’s a long tour on the boat (you could get wet during the tour, no roof when it is raining, although it is fair to say we were offered a raincoat), but there is not much more to see, a bit of village life in a lake, but you could see this on the river of Sengkang by walking around. Would say it is not worthwhile travelling there just to see the lake
