Things to in Kampong Chhnang
Life in Kampong Chnnang very much revolves around the river and other waterways and taking a sightseeing boat ride is the main local tourist attraction. The area has many small riverside communities where people make a living from fish and anything they can grow in their water logged region. Of particular interest to many visitors are Kandal and Chong Kos floating villages, where local people have built their homes on stilts on the river and travel around by boat rather than walking.
Also of interest are the area’s hill top viewpoints and ptotected wilderness areas. From both Krang Deymas hill and Kong Rei Mountain the reward for the effort of walking to the top is fantastic views across fields, rivers and the massive Tonle Sap lake. Similarly, very pleasant scenery, waterfalls and glimpses of wild animals await those eembark on a hike in the Aoral Wildlife Sanctuary.
