Welcome to Cambodia of Angkor World Heritage
Chong Kneas Floating Village: is on the south of Siem Reap city. It is situated some 14 km from Siem Reap city. Chong Kneas is where the boat docks arrive from Battambong and Phnom Penh. It is one of four tourist attractions in Siem Reap. It has thousand of boats waiting for tourists. This is a bit touristy but visitors are not going to see the floating villages by the same boats. They will hire private boat which only take them to see the floating houses. Life of those people relies on fishing. Trip to this place will see fish farm of the most fresh water fish that the fishermen raise, crocodiles farm, snakes carried by children, many kinds of fishing traps made of bamboos, Vietnamese village, Khmere or Cambodian village. These two villages are separate. Other than that, you also see the hammocks made of water hyacinth.
