Kompong Chhnang meaning clay pot port is famous in Cambodia for its... well pottery making of course. A great reason to come here is to visit the wonderful floating villages of the Tonle Sap River in a paddle-boat. The advantage of doing this here is that this place isn't a popular tourist stop, so everything has an authentic feel to it. The surrounding area also has lots of little traditional wooden houses on stills and lots of small farming plots. These can be seen en-route to the floating villages or famous nearby red-pottery village of Ondong Rossey. The town itself is nothing special but gives a great insight to a small working Cambodian town. If you arrive by bus, the chances are you will be met at the bus stop by the friendly English speaking tuk-tuk driver Channy. He will be able to take you to a guesthouse, and you can also arrange a trip to the local sights with him.
