the chaotic floating village Aug 23, 2012
Near siem reap there is two different floating villages, and this is the chaotic one.

Chong khneas is quite close to siem reap. Maybe this is the main reason why this village has turned into a tourist trap. Everything here will cost you something, every single child will ask you for money.

Be prepared to be asaulted by childreng selling you water, asking for money to show you their big snakes, boat drivers leading you to buy rice for the orphans, teachers asking for money for the school...

this is somehow annoying as you do not really know how much is need and how much is just business.

The village itself is different from the other one (Kompong Phluk), this one is made of boats turned into houses and depending the season the village is crowded with lots of "boat-houses" or there is a few. Please note that august-september is low season and there is few boats/houses. October-november is high season for boats and the village is more crowded.
