Chong Kneas Floating Village, Siem Reap

(850+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
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.
