I had heard about the floating Chongknease Village on the Tonle Sap Lake just outside the city of Siem Reap, Camboodia, so I arranged transport and a local guide.

Almost slap bang in the middle of Cambodia you’ll find Lake Tonlé Sap, the country’s largest lake. In fact it is a whopping 2,700 square kilometres! At the north of the lake is the town of Siem Reap and at the south, the Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh.
