What To Expect
Kampong Phluk Floating Village
At 7.00 am depart your hotel for the excursion through the countryside to the world’s second prime freshwater Tonle Sap Lake.
Take a boat trip to ‘Kampong Phluk’ a collection of three small fishing villages in an atmospheric flooded forest setting. Cruise through the village and see unique houses on stilts, and Cambodians at work in the floating forest. Our boat will meander slowly through forest canals, allowing you to catch glimpses of flora and fauna, and see a truly beautiful eco-system.
The Tonle Sap one of the world’s most fruitful bodies of fresh water. In the wet season, the Tonle Sap Lake surges to 12,000 km². During the dry half of the year, the lake shrinks to as small as 2,500 km², draining into the Tonle Sap River. Each year, millions of fish come to spawn in the seasonally flooded forest surrounding the lake, attracting a myriad of water birds as well as people, who have settled in villages along the shores and who live with the rhythm of the water. This ecosystem was classified as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1997.
Take the back roads back to town on this half-day tour in Siem Reap and witness seasonal agricultural activities like cricket catching, rice planting, and harvesting, smoking fish, fish paste (prohoc making), and duck farming. Stop at a local village to pick up Khmer snacks and explore. Visit a Buddhist monastery before heading home. (Suggested visit period is between end July and early March).

Very interesting Fishing Village
This was among one of my favorite tours. We visited a fishing village and rode a boat out to Tonle Sap Lake. My bonus was the canoe ride through the mangroves. Our guide, Phearsom was the best tour guide!
