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.
A local guide who speaks fluent English and has years of experience.

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:
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
- Sun Protection: Sorry to repeat this, but Cambodia can get hot, so be sure to pack sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat.
- 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.
- Camera: Don’t forget to capture the stunning scenery and beautiful moments on your tour!

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

Why small Private group tours? For the Authentic Floating Village Adventure

We continue to use this as the standard upper limit for the size of small groups because it has consistently been highlighted as an important selling element by all of our client’s testimonials. Because of the frequent positive feedback we’ve received from our guests regarding our ability to handle small groups, we’ve decided that this will be the typical maximum number of people in a group.
