What You’ll Do

INFO:

Kampong Phluk Floating Village

The bulk of the homes in Kampong Phluk is constructed on stilts.

The name of the community translates to “harbor of the tusks,” alluding to the three communities that border the main entry to Tonle Sap Lake in this region.

The distance from Siem Reap is slightly more than 30 kilometers, making it an easy half-day excursion. Compared to other villages, the river and road trips are rather quick and straightforward.

The journey from the village to the lake. Because the lake is the most important place, a personal ferry service will transport you there after passing through the hamlet.

The community’s primary source of income is fishing and shrimp farming. However, they do harvest some crops from the land during the dry season. Because Kampong Phluk is a working hamlet, most residents are preoccupied with their jobs, entirely disconnected from the tourism sector that buzzes by their doors.

Life in the neighborhood. Going right past the people’s houses to get a glimpse of another way of life may be interesting, but it may also feel extremely invasive. As previously stated, residents are not involved in the industry and do not gain from it. As a result, there are no general activities available to tourists in Kampong Phluk.

A genuine encounter. A local guide can take you in one of the neighboring little boats into the mangroves or flooded woodland. Furthermore, a few eateries are floating around, and visiting this location benefits the local tourism industry in a variety of ways.

    I was able to learn so much about what life is like in Siem Reap during this tour! We were taken to different parts of the floating village and met with some fascinating people. It was nice to see how much Cambodians appreciate their surroundings and how much the culture has changed in the past few decades. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for something unique and a chance to learn about Cambodian history and culture.
