Chong Kneas Floating Village, Siem Reap

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.

  • We have booked the tour through our tuk tuk driver of the hotel. Have ca $30 paid per person. The boats are all together with very, very loud and you can not talk. In addition, the boat was so dirty that we have screwed up our shorts. A cleaning in Asia has unfortunately not gone get the dirt, so cleaning in Germany need to get there again ne. The ride takes up to the village also forever and there's to see anything along the way. Short hold that farm on the crocodile, it it. All in all a bitter disappointment.

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.
