Duration: HALF DAY
The Floating Village and Port of Chong Khneas are located less than 15km from Siem Reap. It is the perfect place to visit on the Tonle Sap Lake for those that don't have the time to explore Prek Toal or Kompong Phluk.
The Boat Half Day Tours of Chong Khneas will begin at 8am and 10am respectively, when we pick you up from your Hotel or Guesthouse in an air-conditioned vehicle. Our friendly and knowledgeable tour guides speak English (and Khmer of course), and they will ensure that you enjoy your tour, pointing out areas of local interest along the way and answering any questions you may have. It takes about 20 minutes to reach the port of Chong Khneas, and upon arrival we will exit the vehicle and jump onto one of the Mini boats with life jackets and driven by experienced and safe local drivers.
On route to the Boat we will make two stops. The first will be the big fresh ocean, which provides a whole view of the sky and connected to the ocean & unique ecology of the Tonle Sap. The second stop will be the Crocodile & Fish Farm at Chong Khneas. If catfish, crocodiles and large snakes don't interest you, there is a souvenir shop and a viewing deck on board for you to purchase some presents for loved ones or take a few photos.
The boat ride through Chong Khneas will allow you to see ordinary Cambodians going about their daily life in the floating village. Fishermen, boat-makers, markets, schools, spirit houses and waving children are always in plentiful supply on this mesmerizing scenic route, and it is not uncommon for the scenery of Chong Khneas to provoke silence on the boat, as customers take in the sights and sounds that surround them. Once the trip through Chong Khneas is complete.
