Kompong Phluk is one of the more remote and least visited of the villages on Tonle Sap Lake. On this tour, gain a fascinating insight into local life as you explore the stilted houses, browse the floating markets, and cruise around the flooded forests. Hotel pickup and drop-off add extra convenience, and a small groups size means you’ll have plenty of time to ask questions.

What to Expect
After pickup from your Siem Reap hotel, relax as you travel to to Kompong Phluk village by air-conditioned minivan. Depending on the season, arrive in the town by minibus (during the dry season, February to July) or transfer to a small boat to cruise into the village (wet season, August to January). On arrival, cruise around the stilted houses, schools, and floating markets, as your guide explains the unique way in which the locals adapt to the vastly different seasons and how they sustain the community through fishing. The highlight of the tour is the chance to explore the scenic flooded forests, either aboard a traditional canoe (wet season only ) or along the treetop canopy walkway. Back in Siem Reap, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

We booked the tour with Khiri Travel. The price includes an air conditioned car, driver and an English speaking guide. Our guide Tom, was probably the best guide we’ve had in many years of travel. The tour was fascinating. Tom went out of his way to ensure that we had the

It is quite a ride going here, road is bumby, then you'll take a boat to go to the village. The place and the culture are quite unique, though. I love the small boat ride later in the tour, where we toured around a forest with monkeys. Then the sunset (the afternoon half day

An excellent tour of a local market, and walk through the stilted houses in Kompong Phluk. Less tourists and a good authentic experience into how the locals live. The boat trip and stop at the floating restaurant for a beer was also good.
