Floating Village

In Siem Reap, there are several floating villages such as Kampong Pluk, Chong khneas, Kampong Khleang and Me Chrey.

Kampong Pluk Floating Village

Kampong Phluk is a floating village on the Tonle Sap in Siem Reap Province, northern-central Cambodia. “Harbor of the Tusks” is its meaning in Cambodian (Khmer). Houses are built about 10 meters high. It takes about 2 or 3 hours to visit this village.

 

 

 

 

Chong khneas

Chong Khneas: There are many Vietnamese live there; however, the view is very good as people float their houses, restaurants, churches, crocodile farm, schools, and fish farm on water. It takes about one hour to do this tour.

 

 

 

 

Kampong Khleang Floating VillageKampong Khleang is more remote and has less tourists than Kampong Pluk. Located on the northern lake-edge about 55 km east of Siem Reap, visitors to Kampong Khleang during the dry season are universally awestruck by the forest of stilted houses rising up to 10 meters in the air. The waters rise up to one or two meters of the buildings in wet season. Boats cannot get all of the way to the main villages during the dry season.

 

 

Me Chrey Floating VillageMe Chrey is one of the more recently discovered floating villages lies midway between Siem Reap Town and Prek Toal. It is about 25Km from Siem Reap Town. There are fewer tourists there comparing to busy Chong Kneas. Me Chrey is prettier during the wet season when houses are anchored around an island pagoda. This village moves with the water level!
