What to Expect

Good day! Our Kampong Khleang floating village tour is a must-try if you’re seeking for a distinctive and genuine experience in Siem Reap!

The furthest town from Siem Reap that is frequently visited on the Tonle Sap Lake is Kampong Khleang, a permanent stilted village situated about 50 kilometers to the southeast of Siem Reap. The beautiful thing about this is that because there aren’t as many visitors there, you can have a more authentic experience and go at a slower pace.

Almost 6,000 people live in this lovely town, which contains both stilted and floating homes as well as several additional structures for the community’s support. The homes are roughly on the lake’s edge during the dry season, but during the wet season, they rise over the water line.

Your money supports the local community because it is owned and operated by residents in Kampong Khleang. MySiemReapTours is dedicated to responsible and sustainable tourist practices that help the neighborhood. Because of this, we collaborate with neighborhood boat operators to make sure you have a fun and safe trip while also helping the community’s economy.

With our tour guide always at your side, we provide a range of tour choices to Kampong Khleang, including visits to the neighborhood market and a community that makes sticky rice.

So why are you still waiting? By choosing MySiemReapTours for your Kampong Khleang floating village tour, you can enjoy the true atmosphere and leisurely pace of this picturesque hamlet while also helping the neighborhood.

What You’ll Do

Welcome, adventure seekers! Today, we’re going to embark on a one-of-a-kind journey from Siem Reap to the Kompong Khleang floating village. This isn’t your average tour; it’s a life-changing experience that will leave you in awe of the beauty and resilience of the Cambodian people.

Are you ready? Let’s dive right in!

Step 1: Plan Your Trip – Timing is Everything

Now that you’ve chosen MySiemReapTours, it’s time to plan your adventure. Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Season: Kompong Khleang’s charm is that it changes with the seasons. The best time to visit is during the dry season (November to May) when the water levels are low, and you can witness the stilted houses up close. During the wet season (June to October), the water levels rise, turning the village into a floating wonderland.
  • Booking: Reserve your spot in advance to ensure you don’t miss out on this incredible experience. Visit the MySiemReapTours website to book your tour.

Step 2: Prepare for Your Adventure – Pack Like a Pro

Now that you’ve got your tour booked, it’s time to pack. Here’s what you’ll need for your Kompong Khleang adventure:

  1. Pack wisely: Bring sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat, and sunglasses to protect yourself from the elements. Don’t forget your camera or smartphone to capture the stunning sights!
  2. Dress appropriately: Light, breathable clothing is key for staying comfortable in Cambodia’s tropical climate. Opt for long sleeves and pants to protect yourself from mosquitoes.
  3. Bring cash: Kompong Khleang is a remote village, and card payments aren’t widely accepted. Make sure you have enough cash on hand for food, souvenirs, and any donations you might want to make.
  4. Sun Protection: Sorry to repeat this, but Cambodia can get hot, so be sure to pack sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat.
  5. Waterproof Gear: While the tour is primarily on land, it’s a good idea to pack a waterproof bag or phone case just in case.
  6. Camera: Don’t forget to capture the stunning scenery and beautiful moments on your tour!

Step 3: Meet Your MySiemReaptours Guide

Upon arrival in Siem Reap, you’ll meet your MySiemReaptours guide, who will escort you on your journey to Kompong Khleang. With their expert knowledge and passion for the region, your guide will ensure a seamless and enjoyable experience.

Step 4: The Journey Begins – Siem Reap to Kompong Khleang

Your Kompong Khleang floating village tour starts with a picturesque drive from Siem Reap. As you leave the city behind, you’ll be treated to a stunning showcase of Cambodia’s lush countryside. Rice paddies, palm trees, and traditional stilt houses will set the stage for your adventure.

Upon arrival at Kompong Khleang, you’ll board a private boat for a serene cruise through the heart of the floating village. This is where the magic truly begins.

Step 5: Exploring the Kompong Khleang Floating Village

As you glide through the water, you’ll marvel at the extraordinary sights that make the Kompong Khleang floating village tour so unique. Here’s a taste of what you’ll experience:

Spectacular Scenery and Wildlife: Be captivated by the breathtaking scenery as you glide through the serene waterways of the Tonle Sap Lake. Marvel at the diverse array of wildlife, including various species of fish, birds, and even crocodiles. Don’t forget to bring your camera for those unforgettable shots of stilt houses, floating markets, and the lush surrounding landscape.

  • Floating houses: The village’s stilted houses rise above the water, adapting to the changing seasons. It’s a remarkable example of human ingenuity and resilience.
  • Local life: Get a glimpse into the everyday lives of the villagers. Watch fishermen cast their nets, children play, and women cook traditional Cambodian dishes. It’s a rare opportunity to see a different way of life up close.
  • The market: The floating market is the heart of the village. Here, you can taste delicious local foods, purchase handmade crafts, and even try your hand at bargaining with the locals!
  • School and temple visits: Your MySiemReaptours guide will lead you to the local school and temple, offering a deeper understanding of the village’s culture and spirituality.

Step 6: Explore the Kompong Khleang Floating Village – Connecting with the Locals

A major highlight of the Kompong Khleang floating village tour is the opportunity to engage with the locals.

When you get closer to Kompong Khleang, you will be welcomed by a scene that is really one of a kind: a village that appears to be floating over the ocean.

This unique hamlet is a monument to the resiliency and flexibility of the people who make it their home. The dwellings in this community are built on stilts that are many stories high.

Your expert guide from MySiemReaptours will accompany you on tour around the hamlet while providing you with intriguing information about the history and culture of the area.

This enchanting village, perched on stilts above the Tonle Sap Lake, offers a rare glimpse into the authentic Cambodian way of life. So, roll up your sleeves, and let’s get started!

Getting There: Your Ticket to Ride

Now that you’re pumped and ready to explore the wonders of Kompong Khleang, let’s talk logistics. The village is approximately 55 kilometers southeast of Siem Reap, so buckle up, because we’re going on a trip!

The most common way to get to Kompong Khleang is by joining a guided tour. 

These tours typically include transportation, a boat ride through the village, and a knowledgeable guide who’ll dish out all the juicy tidbits about local life. Plus, it’s a fantastic way to meet fellow travelers and swap adventure stories.

But hey, if you’re more of a solo explorer, don’t sweat it! There are plenty of options for the independent traveler, too. 

You can rent a motorbike, hire a tuk-tuk, (mind though I am writing this the 27th of March 2023, today it was 38 degrees, now it is 10 pm and it is still 30 …. I am just saying …), or even catch a shared taxi to reach the village. Just remember to bring your sense of adventure, because navigating the roads to Kompong Khleang is an experience in itself!

Timing is Everything: Weathering the Storm 

When it comes to visiting Kompong Khleang, timing is everything. The village’s charm changes with the seasons, so let’s dive into the best times to embark on your floating adventure.

Cambodia has two distinct seasons: dry and wet. The dry season runs from November to April, while the wet season spans May to October. 

Each season offers its own unique experience, so let’s break it down:

  1. Dry Season: If you’re looking for a smooth ride, the dry season is your best bet. The water levels are lower, and the village appears more “stilted” than “floating.” It’s the perfect time to explore the area on foot or by bicycle. Plus, you’ll get to witness the locals’ ingenious adaptations to the changing environment.
  2. Wet Season: Now, if you’re itching for that true floating village experience, the wet season is where it’s at. The water levels rise, and the village transforms into a watery wonderland. You’ll need to navigate by boat, which adds an extra layer of excitement to your adventure.

Culture Vulture: Soaking Up the Local Flavor

If you’re keen on immersing yourself in the local culture (and who isn’t?), you’re in for a treat! Kompong Khleang offers a plethora of cultural experiences that’ll make your trip one for the books. Let’s dive in!

  1. Traditional Fishing Techniques: Learn the art of traditional fishing from the experts themselves. You’ll be amazed at the locals’ skill and ingenuity as they cast their nets and haul in the day’s catch.
  2. Cooking Classes: Put on your chef’s hat and learn to whip up authentic Cambodian dishes using fresh ingredients straight from the village market. It’s a hands-on way to experience local culture and satisfy your inner foodie.
  3. Home Visits: Nothing beats a warm welcome from a local family. Home visits offer a unique opportunity to observe daily life in Kompong Khleang and engage in meaningful conversations with the villagers.
  4. Handicraft Workshops: Unleash your inner artist by participating in handicraft workshops. Learn traditional techniques for creating silk, pottery, or wood carvings, and bring home a unique, handmade souvenir.

Souvenir Smorgasbord: Treasures from the Deep

    I was able to learn so much about what life is like in Siem Reap during this tour! We were taken to different parts of the floating village and met with some fascinating people. It was nice to see how much Cambodians appreciate their surroundings and how much the culture has changed in the past few decades. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for something unique and a chance to learn about Cambodian history and culture.
