Kampong Phluk Floating Village
Enjoy Tonle Sap Lake, is a lake with no ends in front of you, and birds flying slowly overhead and surrounding with the interesting village.

During the dry season (February to Jul), the village can be reached by mini bus or motorbike, as the – bumpy - road that is normally flooded dries up.

In the rainy season (August to Jan), a short boat ride from the quay, through the wetland area will take you to Kompong Phluk. It is not a floating village but a village on high stilts as well as some floating houses and in spite of fishing is often the privilege of the Vietnamese minority but inhabitants of Kompong Phluk are almost exclusively of Cambodian origin. The villagers frequently move from house to another house during the rainy season, they live in houses built on stilts and move to small huts near the waterfront during the dry season to do fishing.

Just wow! Spending a little extra for the private tour was well worth the investment. Everything ran so smoothly and we had the most lovely day. Our guide was a real gem and made the day extra special for us. Lohn is super personable and knowledgeable. He made sure we were always comfortable and shared so much about Cambodian culture and history. The day was really well organized and flowed nicely. Even in the dry season, I wouldn't skip Tonle Sap.
Great trip with San

We were picked up from our hostel with driver and tour guide San. Very interesting tour, learning about history of Cambodia and flaoting village culture. Stopped at a lovely local restaurant on the way back to hostel. San was helpful throughout. Would definitely recommend.
