Last Monday, my friends and I spent about two hours exploring sites on the outskirts of the city.We drove along the national road Number 2 which is nearly a one hour ride from the capital.

On the way, while I was keeping my eyes on the left hand side, I saw a banner that read “Boeng Chhouk 999” in red.

It signaled us to ride on a small bumpy roadfor about one kilometre. Finally, we reached Boeng Chhouk Fishing Lake in Phum number one Svay Roloum commune, Sa Ang district Kandal province.

We arrived there in the cool evening, and were covered by the shade of the lotus trees. It was so peaceful. Immediately, we burst out, “Wow how romantic and quiet it is!”

Since it was during working hours, the lake was not over-crowded. We parked our car, and were immediately fascinated with one of the beautiful thatch-roofed cottages around the two hectare pond. It was calm enough to sit back and chit-chat and let go of our worries.

As we sat, a young boy with a smart suit asked us whether we would like to order food or do some fishing.

We replied “no, just relax”.

Despite saying no, the young boy still allowed us to spend time relaxing there. While we were talking, I saw a woman and her daughter happily riding against plastic duck on the water. My two friends continued talking, so I occupied my time by bending my leg on the smooth bamboo bed under the serene thatched roof.

About 30 minutes later, we decided to leave since it was becoming too dark to see the beautiful fish in the water.

I asked the owner, a friendly woman, about the prices there. She replied that visitors can celebrate birthdays, host friend or family reunions, or host parties there for a suitable price. In my opinion, it is a very reasonable price.

The woman told us that one thatch-roofed bench costs 10,000 riels per event, which means you can stay there for as little or as long as you like. It’s up to you. Plus, if you want to fish, you can have your fish weighed and cooked for you for 15,000 riels.

There are also other dishes on the menu which include roast fish, beef and chicken with mango sauce. There are 19 thatch-roofed cottages around the water and several giant plastic floating ducks.

“You can have your private time here, which we offerwith a reasonable rate. You can have a party, celebrate birthdays, go fishing, chill out and chat with your friendsor other reunion opportunites,” the friendly lady said to me.

If you want to kick back and relax, don’t forget to go fishing at Boeng Chhouk resort.

I believe you will come back feeling refreshed and revitalised, becuase that is exactly how I felt.
