We booked this trip with our hotel and our driver took us to a village where we gave him money to buy our boat tickets. We had a boat to ourselves and the driver took us along the river to the houses on stilts. Although he spoke only a little English and we have little Cambodian, he explained some of... More

If you saw other floating villages before...you will be so disappointed. Very noisy, the smallest floating village I've seen in my life. If you are in Cambodia stop in kampong Chhnang to see a real one.

The trip advisor scores and other reviews suggests that this experience is very divisive, it appeals to a certain type and is of no interest to others. For me and my wife it was spellbinding to see how Cambodians live their whole lives on stilted houses built to avoid the swell of water coming from the mountains far away. To... More

We had four days in Siem Reap and I just felt that this trip took up more time than it was worth. It's interesting and quiet scenic as the sun goes down but that's about it. It isn't a true representation of Cambodian life and I found it to be quiet gimicky. The best part was our boat drivers they... More

We went to the floating village with a tour operator. They charged us 17USD each. It's a half day tour and can be done in the morning or noon to evening. We went for the evening tour as it ends with the sunset view over Tonle Sap Lake. From the city it took us one hour to reach the boat.... More

Totally authentic experience to ride the boat and see how Cambodgian people live in that village. It was trully a piece o life. We initially did not want to go, having already seen some other Asian floating villages, which were more like tourist traps. This is different and really worth a visit. Since we were on a private tour with... More

Firstly, I have read a few of the previous reviews about it being a scam and people pestering you. I may be wrong but I think these people are actually intending to review a different floating village ie Chong Kneas as their comments do not come close to matching my experience and even descriptions of prices paid to do not...

Fascinating trip to see how a village of people live in stilt homes on the river. Entrance fee USD20 gives you an hour and half boat trip around the village so you can see close up how the local people live and fish for a living. Gives a real perspective of how hard life can be for certain of the... More

Having been told by a friend to visit the floating village we asked our hotel about costs and how long the trip would take. Having decided not to go on a group trip organised by the hotel we arranged for a tuk tuk to drive us to both the village and the silk factory (brief tour but worth the visit... More

Ok so first up, why you should go: 1) The floating villages really are a marvel - houses on stilts, people growing and catching things on or in the water, temples on water, lots of other little makeshift boats. It's quite an experience. 2) The boat ride is pleasant on a hot day, a bit rickety but it's something different... More
