We went on a tour to here arranged through the hotel and it was a great half day. You can to interact with villagers, take boat rides, canoe rides and bus rides. Being a served a beer in the middle of a mango jungle was surreal. Recommend it.

Before even sighting the village we were halted by two scruffy men at a shack demanding $25 each as entry fee including a vague boat tour. $100 (there were 4 of us) could probably buy us a boat in Cambodia.. We already had heard about the overpriced rice and 'school supplies gambits, and the inevitable tipping, so we promptly opted... More

This is a good option to spend half a day when you are in Siem Reap. Especially when you want a break from temple hopping and need a change of scenery. The Kompong Phluk floating village is on Tonle Sap lake . The entry fee will be 25$ per adult to the village and after boating for almost 30-40 minutes... More

This village a good distance from Siem Reap depends on fishing and tourists traveling on pretty dilapidated vessels along the water to the big lake Tonle Sap. The men casting their small nets 365 days a year makes grim looking. And their houses built on huge stilts to protect them from the rainy season floods are an engineering work of... More

This a floating village due to the fact the water level rises so much. Good glimpse of real Cambodia life but poverty is bad here. Beautiful temple. And say hello to the school children. My advice don't buy books for them. Donate straight to the school instead. Unique experience

Not really what we were expecting. Not really a floating village, but it was dry season so it might be different during wet season. Interesting to see houses on stilts and to see a very different way of life. Getting a ride on small boats around swamp just to be pressured into buying snacks we felt exploited. Whole place felt...

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
