We came here because our guide from Angkor Tuk Tuk Travel pushed heavily on visiting the floating village. We came here as we did not plan for an alternative site (we did the 2 day tour). But since we were there during the dry season, water level at the floating village was low so while it was interesting to see... More

As many other reviewers have mentioned it isn't cheap, it feels quite sombering to boat past these people working to survive from day to day on pure sustenance living. Yet we loved it. We went from Siem Reap in a tuk tuk which we knew would be quite tiring with the kids but we really liked our tuk tuk driver... More

It wasn't as touristy as expected, but real villagers living a real river/waterside life. Went during dry month of April it was hard to believe the town street would be filled with water during wet season. They were real villagers and felt somewhat in violation of their private life by touring the place.

We booked the visit directly from our youth hostel for 18$. It included the minibus and the boat trip, the whole tour requiring about 4 hours. It takes about 45 min drive to go there, then about 40 min on the boat to go through the village and reach the lake Tonlé Sap, where they stop you at some floating... More

It takes about 45 min to go from Siem Reap to the area where you can board a boat - depending on the time of year. The boat takes you down the river passed a village where all the houses are built on stilts. Not very attractive - lookes more like a slum. The boats you pass are often very... More

What an amazing trip. The floating village is about 1 hour outside Siem Reap. On the way to the village when it's the rainy season you can take a small boat all the way and then float through the main street. I visited in March (the dry season) so instead you have a mini bus drive you closer and then... More
