Chong Kneas Floating Village in Siem Reap

Floating houses on TonlĂ© Sap LakeIt is the floating village at the big lake in Southeast Asia closest and most accessible to Siem Reap. If you want to visit  or relatively easy look at the floating Village or Tonle Sap, Tourist boat trip at Chong Khneas are available all the time, departing from the Chong Khneas docks all day. Take a motodup or taxi the 11-15km from Siem Reap City to the boat docks where there are many boats waiting for passengers. More than two-hour boat trip through the floating village runs $20 per person on a private boat if you join with other tourist cost around 15US$.The boats may carry as many as 15 other people. The boatman will probably show you out the differing Khmer fishing, Vietnamese floating households and the floating markets, clinics, schools and other boatloads of tourists. Chong Khneas, while interesting, is over-touristed and is not as picturesque and 'unspoiled' as floating villages further from Siem Reap. The boat trip usually includes two stops: one at a touristy floating 'fish and bird exhibition' with a souvenir and snack shop, Crocodile Place, and the other at the very highly recommended Gecko Environment Centre, which offers displays and information introducing the ecology of the lake area.
