Pricey but worth it

Possibly the most expensive thing you will do in Siem Reap $US 25.00 pp which if you think of the value for the temple pass makes this pricey. But it is worth a look floating... read 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

It's sickening paying 20 usd per person just to see how tourism can destroy a river, and all the animal and human life around it, enslaving its population that right just want you to pay for everything and move fast if you don't. After 3 days in Siam Reap, my advice is visit the temples in one day ( go... More

We arranged to visit this floating village through our hotel. We travelled by tuk tuk which took about an hour from Siem Riep and a boat met us at the river and took us through the village. It was much bigger than I expected and so interesting to see how the people have adapted their lives around the water. We... More

This genuine stilted village will open you eyes to how natives live on stilted homes to protect from the monsoons and rising water levels. Their homes have no plumbing or electricity, yet they run sizeable fishing operations and even raise land animals and crocodiles as part of their business. These are authentic, genuine villages, no one is hawking souvenirs at... More

One of the largest floating village in siem reap, don't miss to visit this place after tonle sap lake and we can have lunch experience with fishing there also possible. By local tuk tuk (remork) only 30 minutes from siem reap town and guests can take boat to visit the village for about 2 hours, the experience is great.

My wife and I paid $30 each for the private fishing boat tour down the river, past the village, out the the lake. Our car driver accompanied us at our request (he went free of charge for being Cambodian) and took photos of us. We had fun along the way as I shouted "Tau na" (where are you going?) to... More

Possibly the most expensive thing you will do in Siem Reap $US 25.00 pp which if you think of the value for the temple pass makes this pricey. But it is worth a look floating down a river to a village which gives you a great idea and view of how hard the people work and their day to day... More
