The Floating Village and Port of Chong Khneas are located less than 15km from Siem Reap. It is the perfect place to visit on the Tonle Sap Lake for those that don’t have the time to explore Prek Toal or Kompong Phluk. The Tara Boat Half Day Tours of Chong Khneas will begin at 8am and 10am respectively, when we pick you up from your Hotel or Guesthouse in an air-conditioned vehicle. Our friendly and knowledgeable tour guides speak English (and Khmer of course), and they will ensure that you enjoy your tour, pointing out areas of local interest along the way and answering any questions you may have. It takes about 20 minutes to reach the port of Chong Khneas, and upon arrival we will exit the vehicle and jump onto one of the Mini Tara’s – smaller boats with life jackets and driven by experienced and safe local drivers. On route to the Tara Boat we will make three stops. Firstly as we pass the rice paddy and lotus field we will have an opportunity to stop and take some photo of the lotus flowers which is a deeply important flower in Buddhism. We will then stop at the stilted houses just before the lake to see how the water levels effect the way people live as well as seeing a floating school. The third stop will be the Crocodile & Fish Farm at Chong Khneas to learn about some of the trades people on the life work in. If catfish, crocodiles and large snakes don’t interest you, there is a souvenir shop and a viewing deck on board for you to purchase some presents for loved ones or take a few photos Price: $29 per person If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay.
