Tonle Sap is the largest freshwater lake in South East Asia located near Siem Reap in Cambodia. Fed by Mekong river, it is the most productive ecosystem in the world forming a significant source of livelihood to this region. Kompong Khleang is one of the three floating villages located on Tonle Sap. Home to more than 20,000 people living in stilted houses, it is the most populous as well as the most advanced among all the settlements on Tonle Sap.
Located about 60km from Siem Reap, Kompong Khleang is the farthest of the three settlements and hence is also the least touristic of all. The village receives about just 10 to 15 visitors every day, even during the peak seasons. So if you are looking to get away from crowded Siem Reap, you can make a trip to Kompong Khleang.
The unique thing about this village is that depending on the season you visit, you can see the town floating on water connected by just boats or a remote town on land amidst a dense jungle with muddy roads.
