Kampong Kliang Travel Guide

Kampong Kliang is a remote village located on the northern lake-edge, about 35 km east of Siem Reap. In the rainy season the whole village will be covered by water and in the dry season the forest of stilted houses rise up to 10 meters in the air. Like Kampong Phluk, Kampong Kliang is a permanent community within the floodplain of Tonle Sap Lake, with an economy based on fishing and surrounded by flooded forest. But Kampong Khleang is significantly larger with nearly 10 times the population of Kampong Phluk, making it the largest community on the Lake.
What to do?
Experience the life on water is the highlight of trips to Kampong Kliang. Having lunch in a local house, peddling through the floating forest or helping local fishermen a hand catching their dinners, stay overnight with villagers, it's all possible here. An excursion to floating villages can easily be combined with a visit to the Roulous group, Beng Mealea or charity organizations as well.
Getting there
Kampong Kliang village can be reached by boat from the Chong Khneas docks or by a combination of road to Domdek on Route No.6 and then boat to the village, the best method depending on the time of year. During the dry season, boats cannot get all of the way to the main villages.
When to go?
Depending on the water level, visitors can reach this floating village either by boat or by car. But the period between August and February, a visit to floating villages is a real treat.
