Chong Khnies, a floating village at the edge of the Tonle Sap Lake, is home to the Chong Khnies floating Catholic church in Cambodia. Located about 5 miles from the city center of Siem Reap, the church is surrounded by expansive paddy fields and fishing villages, which are the primary source of income for the area. Electricity is supplied primarily from small generators and solar panels.
