Cambodia Village Tour- Chong Khneas Floating Village

This is the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia. We rode bicycle from Siem Reap town to the lake... it took 1 hour to reach. However, the view is very nice and we did stop for a while to take some picture and rest. 

3 person to share a boat and it costs USD12 per person, maybe you can get cheaper with more people. The water is creamy colour, kind of dirty... There's people live on the lake and there is floating market also for their daily supplies. 

This Viet Nam School is on the lake and some of the children lost their parents and some of them their parents are busy to work for family, they are so poor to go study. So the children are sent to this place. The teachers come here voluntary for teaching and taking care of them.
