This famous floating village is now extremely popular with visitors wanting a break from the temples, and is an easy excursion to arrange yourself. If you want something a bit more peaceful, try venturing to one of the other Tonlé Sap villages further afield. Visitors arriving by boat from Phnom Penh or Battambang get a sneak preview, as the floating village is near Phnom Krom, where the boat docks. It is very scenic in the warm light of early morning or late afternoon and can be combined with a view of the sunset from the hilltop temple of Phnom Krom. The downside is that tour groups tend to take over, and boats end up chugging up and down the channels in convoy. Avoid the crowds by asking your boat driver to take you down some back channels.

Visitors should stop at the Gecko Centre, an informative exhibition that is located in the floating village and helps to unlock the secrets of the Tonlé Sap. It has displays on flora and fauna of the area, as well as information on communities living around the lake.

The village moves depending on the season and you will need to rent a boat to get around it properly. However, Sou Ching, the company that runs the tours here, has fixed boat prices at a stiff US$15 per person for independent travellers. This makes it very poor value by comparison with the temples of Angkor. Tour operators can generally get a much cheaper rate if you can join a budget tour.

One of the best ways to visit Chong Kneas is to hook up with the Tara Boat, which offers all-inclusive trips with a meal aboard its converted cargo boat. Prices include transfers, entry fees, local boats, a tour guide and a two-course meal, starting from US$29 for a lunch to US$36 for a sunset buffet and all-you-can-drink tour.

Getting to the floating village from Siem Reap costs US$3 by moto each way (more if the driver waits), or US$15 or so by taxi. The trip takes 20 minutes. Alternatively rent a bicycle in town and just pedal out here, as it is a leisurely 11km through pretty villages and rice fields.
