Chong Kneas Floating Village, Siem Reap

(1/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We went to visit the floating village and take the boats that leave u$ s20 per person... the ride is very short and we seemed very expensive. He problem is that runs very little the boat and you give the option of pay u$ s30 more to upload you to a canoe and go more... and not only that... the tour is to tell the poor guys who live there and that a large percentage is orphan etc.. to then tell you that would be good that gifts buying rice in a local of them and that the bag girl is worth u$ s30 (25 kg) and the large u$ s50. You notice that you're obliged to buy, you look really bad if you don't and you press... my recommendation is do it but take your rice to donate. It seems that also resold the rice donated... a great scam!

  • Card scam! Ripoff organized! Your "Guide" improvised will ask you yet again and again to give money and money (or buy bag of rice poir children). Then... you already pay $ 20 /p poir Finally, get a floating bar on the village, but you want more, you can rent a canoe $ 20 /p or still (what you did) take a boat taxi, which will get you to tour of the village for $ 30, we went down to 30 because it already was a scam and will also... You'll round the village, you will promise wonders, for anything else than a tour to old and tired tourist, anyway, if you're looking for authenticity, you have a chance to find at Angkor, can be authenisme in Sieam Reap is found in beer, or maybe the travel agency?
