The floating market is worth effort the visit. Take the private cruise away from the crowded touristy site to visit the Tonlesap river. You can enjoy the scenery and Cambodian life on water. The excursion is around 45 minutes on the river opening  up to the lake and a vast expanse of water appears before you.
The trip take in  “floating village”, which split into  two areas, one with villagers of Vietnamese ancestry, the other Cambodian.
The visit bring you to vvillage of Chong Kneas, which has everything a villager needs. Houses, schools, churches, temples,
shops and hairdressers, all on stilts above the water.
