Kompong Khleang

Kompong Khleang is about 55km outside of Siem Reap city on the Tonle Sap and is the largest floating village in Siem Reap province and home to more than 10,000 residents. The economy is dominated by fishing and due to seasonal flooding all homes either buoyed or on stilts (hence the name "floating village" - they literally appear to float for part of the year). Water levels drop several meters beginning in December and a sand bank forms during the later part of the season (end of January/February - June).
