Sunset tour of Kampong Phluk stilts home village on the Tonle Sap

Sunset tour of Kampong Phluk stilts home village on the Tonle Sap

The floating village of Kampong Phluk is 31 kilometers east of Siem Reap and set among lush, often-flooded mangroves. This fishing village of distinctive stilt houses boasts an ever-changing landscape due to Cambodia's dramatic wet and dry seasons.

During the rainy season from June to January, the water level rises; locals travel to work and school by boat. Visits in dry season involve some walking. On this small-group tour, get an up-close view of the lifestyle and culture of this unique Southeast Asian lake community.

The people of Kampong Phluk are welcoming and accustomed to visitors. They are always ready with smiles and you'll find the children in particular are friendly and inquisitive. Their lifestyle is sustainable and self-sufficient and tourism is an important part of the local economy.

Our expert Khmer guide will enrich your experience and give you insight into the way of life of these communities and will enjoy the sun set view on the largest in Asia (Tole sap lake ).

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Kampong Phluk Floating Village, 812 Siem Reap, Siem Reap 170904 Cambodia

At Kampong Phluk we hop in a boat and explore, taking in the beautiful waterways and charming houses on stilts. In dry season you'll be able to see the watermarks on the beams showing how high the waters rise, and in wet season you'll see the villagers and fishermen going about their business by boat.


Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: Tonle Sap Lake, Lower Mekong Basin Cambodia

Going out on the Tonle Sap itself is a deeply calming experience thanks to the still waters meeting the horizon as far as you can see. We round off the day with a drink (and dinner, if you wish) at a traditional floating restaurant to watch the sun set over the lake.

Duration: 2 hours
