My first stop was the village of Chong Khneas, located on the northwestern edge of Tonle Sap and the closest to Siem Reap (the city just outside the famous Angkor Wat temples.) WIth over 1300 houseboats and 5000 residents, Chong Khneas also boasts a floating school, a floating church, and even a floating basketball court.  Living on Water: Floating Villages by Tiffany Chu
