Fodor's Review

Between Chong Khneas and Battambang, this is mainland Southeast Asia's most important waterbird nesting site. It's a spectacular scene if you visit at the start of the dry season (November and December), when water remains high and thousands of rare birds begin to nest. Visits can be booked through oSmoSe Conservation Ecotourism Education. Day tours and overnight stays at the Prek Toal Research Station can be arranged. Prices vary.

Trekking and Bird Watching

Prek Toal is incredibly interesting with prek toal experince and the water birds, and many kinds of birds are standing on the trees with the nests and the babies. We hope that you will get a deep understanding of just how important this environment is to the whole area as well as to the lives of the birds. Enjoy this birdwatching after trekking or cycling with
