More Info

There are actually several so-called floating villages located on, and around the Tonle Sap Lake (Boeng Tonle Sap) and they are all somewhat different. The Tonle Sap Lake is the largest feature of the map of Cambodia, and is an important natural resource in terms of fishing and wetlands. In the rainy season, the Mekong River backs up into the lake, and it swells to more than 5 times its size in the dry season, flooding the surrounding forests and plains. Of course the best time to visit ‘floating villages’ is during the wet season when the water is high. You can try a ‘do-it-yourself’ tour, but it can be a hassle, and there are stories of people having problems trying to do it themselves.This famous floating village is now extremely popular with visitors wanting a break from the temples and is an easy enough excursion for them. It is near Phnom Krom Mountain where the boat docks it is very scenic in the warm light of the early morning or late afternoon and be combined with view of sunset from the hill top temple of Phnom Krom. The village moved depending on the season and you will need to rent a boat to get around it properly this trip takes time for 40 minutes.It’s the largest fresh water lake in Southeast Asia, the life blood of Cambodian fishing industry. It derives from Mekong River which is on the longest river in Asia, flowing 4500 kilometers from Hamalaya mountain of Tibet China, it was elevation of about 5000 meters running through China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, and to South China Sea. The combination of water flowing into the lake, and the backup of the Tonle Sap River swells the lake to 5-times its size in the dry season. This increase in size floods the surrounding flood plain and forests, creating an incredibly diverse and rich eco-system. The Mekong river from as far away as Phnom Penh, reverses the direction of the Tonle Sap river to bring an over flow of water and silt to support both rice growing and breeding fish of many sizes and vessel and moving between the floating homes, school, shop and small fish-farms you will experience close up, daily lake life.
