While many activities in the region involve visiting temples or monasteries, there are tours offered to visitors who wish to explore other areas in Cambodia. One such tour is the boat ride through the floating village in Chong Kneas – which is a two-hour tour along the river in Siem Reap with various stops along the way. Those who wish to donate supplies or materials to students in the floating schools may do so during one of the many stops.
It’s important to note that the trip is not exactly one for entertainment – poor residents inhabit many of the floating homes on the river, leaving tourists to see the stark reality of hardships faced by many in the region. Those who lives are on water and families living together in small homes.
