Visited for a half day from Siem Reap in the dry season, so the stilts that the buildings are built on were clearly visible. In the wet season the area that we walked around is usually flooded and the villagers get around by boat. The...More

We paid USD$20 per person to enter the Kompong Khleang water village, which included a boat ride on Tonle Sap Lake. It was a very interesting and worthwhile trip where we observed local villagers going about their everyday lives. We understand that there is no...More

An interesting opportunity to see what a local Cambodian floating village looks like. The boat journey is pleasant and you are able to take photos of the houses and the villagers.

It was a beautiful ride getting to the lake. Once there it was fascinating to see the communities of people living in stilt houses and houseboats and men setting nets in the water for fishing. I have to admit that I was somewhat uncomfortable feeling...More

South of Siem Reap is one of the largest and least-visited villages on the Tonle Sap Lake, Kompong Khleang, which has a population of about 10,000 people, all making a living from fishing. The drive is interesting, seeing how life is for the people of...More
