PHNOM PENH | Kampong Chhnang Floating Village
Overview Programme Inclusion Gallery Request
With this tour, you have the opportunity to discover typical river life in Cambodia. Kampong Chhnang (Clay Pot Port), on the Tonlé Sap River, is a tale of two cities: the leafy centre, its focal point a grassy park, and the bustling dockside. Nearby sights include two floating villages and a hamlet famous for its distinctive pottery. The word "kampong" means that it is a port. Kampong Chhnang has many floating houses along its river, and the word "Chhnang" is the Khmer word for pottery. Located on the Tonle Sap river, Kampong Chhnang is surrounded by water for much of the year, meaning that many of the town’s buildings are either constructed on floating rafts or very high wooden stilts. Fishing is the main economic activity of the area so you can interact with local fishing families and visit their very rustic houses

Start the day with a transfer to a small provincial town located 1.5 hours north-west of Phnom Penh known as Kampong Chhnang, meaning “Port of Pottery”. It is famous for its beautiful landscape, iconic sugar palm trees that dot the landscape and where local villages produce pottery in the midst of the rice fields.

The town is also home to one of the larger floating villages on the lake which is predominantly inhabited by Vietnamese traders, which you will visit upon arrival. Visit a local floating home and enjoy a drink with your host and learn about how life is lived on the water.

Return to the mainland and transfer to Phnom Touch. Touch means small in Khmer and this tiny hill located near a modern pagoda offers stunning vistas over the Tonle Sap Lake. Enjoy a picnic lunch in this picturesque setting before heading over sandy roads and through paddy fields to the pottery villages.

Learn how the community makes pottery the traditional way and observe how sugar is collected from the palm trees. Let your guide assist you with translating if you are interested to learn more about village life. Admire the beautiful surroundings once more before heading back to Phnom Penh. If time permits, we can make a stop at Oudong (Khmer capital in 17th-19th centuries). Oudong is located on a hill with a nice viewing point.
