Tonle Sap - Kampong Phluk

Kampong Phluk - Tonle Sap - Siem Reap

This picture was taken during the dry season, during the wet season this entire area is covered in water, that rises up to 20 feet higher than it is here.

Kompong Phluk is a commune and village in Siem Reap Province in northern-central Cambodia. It is a floating village on the Tonle Sap. The name means "harbor of the tusks".

Kampong Phluk Floating Village, (off the Highway to Phnom Penh). This is a much more authentic 'floating village experience' than the one close to the Tonlé Sap ferry harbour. Enquire at your local hotel for a day trip to this fascinating village on stilts, which should cost ~$30. It takes about 2 hours to reach the village, depending on the road conditions and water level.
