Chong Kneas Floating Village

3/5
3 Reviews
Address: | Tonle Sap, Siem Reap, Cambodia

What people are saying:

There are floating villages, but it shouldn’t be here. Here are the spots to circle and buy tickets: boarding at the pier (super rotten boat), passing through some houseboats, and then going to the floating pier/floating market on the lake for shopping. Things are more expensive than the night market in Siem Reap, and there are some bus groups that will take guests here to buy rice (Cambodian pollution-free fragrant rice).... The children here will sell and beg, and the big python throws ten at the aunt. Nine will pay and run away. If the tour guide chooses self-funded projects, please choose Royal Palace or Beng Mi Lei instead of coming here.

    SCAM does not reflect the Cambodian people . Do not go on this tour

    This place is a total rip off . We don’t usually get caught out as we do a lot of travel, and we should have done some research . After paying to get on the muddy water for a 20 min boat ride. We got ...

    Your money goes only to private company which owns this part of lake

    If I had known I wouldn’t have gone

    This is a trip which educates you about poverty, people who have nowhere else to live except on this floating village. The water is brown and smells similar to a water recycling plant. It has a degree...
