Srok Yeung

Srok Yeung is one of the most famous ecotourism site in Cambodia.

Srok Yeung or Our Ecotourism Site is a community-based recreational area located at the foot of Phnom Krom mountain near the Tonle Sap Lake, the largest lake in Southeast Asia and also home to theworld's most productive inland fishery. Situated on the northwest Cambodian floodplain, the 100-hectare rural property is owned by the Empress Angkor Hotel, one of the leading hotels in Siem Reap, and is only 20 minutes from the town's airport and the historic Angkor temples.

Visitors are offered a unique chance to experience nature and traditional rural lifestyles with the charm, elegance and comfort of an international-standard hotel while helping to diversify local livelihoods and reduce poverty. The site has been developed by hotel management in partnership with local residents in Phum Krorsang Roleung village, a small rural settlement near the lake.

With four lakes covering 26 hectares, Srok Yeung Ecotourism Site has a wide range of opportunities for fishing and boating. Other activities include cycling and riding on ox or water buffalo-carts operated by local villagers. Depending on the season, visitors can also observe and even take part in traditional agricultural activities such as planting and harvesting rice or tending tropical fruit orchards.

We also offer team-building exercises for companies and other organizations. For the more adventurous, camping in tents with luxury hotel bedding allows visitors to experience the beauty of the Cambodian countryside at night in a comfortable and secure setting. Future plans include a football field, a mini-golf course, a cooking school and luxury resort accommodation.

Despite its remote location, the site offers the full range of catering services available at the Empress Angkor Hotel management. For short visits of three to five hours, these range from lunch boxes and light meals for two people to cocktail receptions and gala dinners with traditional live music and dancing for up to 1,800 guests. For longer visits, we offer full-day packages for groups seeking team-building exercises.

We also offer one or two night camping tours for guests wanting to experience the real Cambodia beyond the temples including the stunning natural environment around the Tonle Sap Lake.Srok Yeung literally means our district but is used in a wider sense to refer to the whole of Cambodia. Similarly, the term Srok Khmer means Khmer district and is also used to refer to our country which is otherwise known as Kampuchea in the Khmer language.
