1.0
#10 of 46 in Historic Sites in Siem Reap
Historic Site Tourist Spot
Cycle around or take a boat tour of Chong Kneas Floating Village, where hundreds of boat houses make up one of the many floating household settlements close to Siem Reap. Expect to encounter extreme poverty and poor living conditions, which may make this an uncomfortable visit for many. You'll get a sense of the life here, which depends on the unpredictable lake, touring sights such as a floating classroom of an elementary school. Watch water buffalos shoulder-deep in mud, and imagine life in a shack on stilts stuck in the lakeshore. Plan your visit to Chong Kneas Floating Village and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Siem Reap holiday planner.

Where to stay in Siem Reap

Siem Reap offers attractive accommodations on every budget. Inexpensive family-run guesthouses provide clean, private rooms with access to the host's wealth of information. Hostels catering to backpackers cluster around the old market squares. Four- and five-star resorts welcome guests to retreat from the city into sleek modern interiors or rustic village havens, while mid-range hotels with sparkling pools fill in the spectrum. All can be booked online in advance, but with the abundant options at hand you shouldn't have much trouble finding a room upon arrival.
