Chong Kneas Floating Village, Siem Reap
(1/5 based on 750+ 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.

  • The floating village is great, absolutely worth seeing. Also, you could talk about it whether $25 per person are ok for the boat tour, then, may the villagers have a part of these fees, and among us, who can travel to Cambodia, also $25 not particularly hurt the. But one feels a little drawn, if it then goes into a completely runtergewirtschaftes boat, you first have to ask for life jackets (we had small children)(die sind übrigens Umsonst mitgefahren, sollte man fairerweise erwähnen), the boat due to lack of exhaust is incredibly loud and the driver speaks not a word of English. Here it comes in spite of the great floating village a bit in thinking whether it was all worth. There will be even a second, less tourist floating village, because we were actually going, have driver but by tuk-tuk to persuade us. Maybe you will not make this mistake.
