Chong Kneas is the the closest floating village to Siem Reap. If you require a for the most part quick and straightforward look at the Tonle Sap, watercraft voyages through Chong Khneas are open, leaving from the Chong Khneas vessel docks for the duration of the day. There are diversity between Khmer and Vietnamese floating families and the floating markets, facilities, schools and diverse boatloads of guests.
Chong Khneas, while interesting, is over-touristed and isn't as wonderful and 'unblemished' as floating villages support from Siem Reap. The pontoon trip normally joins two stops: one at a touristy floating 'fish and bird appear' with a knickknack and goody shop, and the other at the outstandingly endorsed Gecko Environment Center, which offers exhibits and information showing the nature and biodiversity of the lake zone.
For the tenants of the floating villages of Chong Kneas, life on the water is anything but a social custom that people love and wish to secure. Exactly when the villagers were directed about their living conditions, they said that they might want to live on the land and approach clean water and sanitation and have their children go to suitable schools as opposed to the insufficiently kept up floating school.
