Kompong Khleang is the farthest floating village from Siem Reap but it is supposedly the most authentic. Zac and I hired a bat-mobile tuk tuk from the main market and then headed off. Our tuk tuk driver accidently took us to a closer floating village so we got to the Kompong Khleang later than we expected.  The boat ride to the floating section of Kompong Khleang was another $25 USD and would take another hour so Zac and I decided to just enjoy the town from the land and walked around. Additionally, the water level was very low and it most likely was not worth going all the way to the floating section. On the mainland, all of the homes and buildings were built on stilts. The drive there and back was one of my favourite parts of the day. Just viewing the countryside and the different styles of Cambodian homes was fascinating.
