What an enjoyable few hours. I can't say much for the colour of the water (it was also the dry season), but the village on stilts was impressive. I kept wondering what it would look like when the Lake rises a few metres and everyone would boat around? We had lunch on a floating restaurant, enjoyed the extra boat trip... More

We are in a group of 4 visited Kompong Phluk in January 2017. Initially we were happy with the service of the boatman as he was introducing the beauty of Kompong Phluk to us. The terrible thing came when he brought us to a floating station and forced us to join the mangrove tour. We rejected to join the tour... More

A tour by the floating villages may be quite interesting, but there are better tours that this one. This site is run by a private company and only a very small percentage of the 25 dollars paid for the tour will find it's way to the villagers/boat drivers. It does sometimes feel like an exploitation of poverty, somewhat like a... More

We came here as part of a private tour with a guide, travelling in a mini van. We visited here after going to first to Banteay Srey and then to Kbal Spean. It made for a really enjoyable day out. We took a boat upriver to the village and motored around the tall, rickety stilt houses. It was really fascinating... More

Went to visit the fishing villages during our first afternoon at Siem Reap. I thought it was a great insight into local Cambodian life. The high-rise houses on massive stilts were a sight to behold. The boats are a bit dingy but that adds to the experience. It is an hour away from Siem Reap, but on the whole it... More

Going to Komplong Phluk at the end of the dry season was interesting, the river is barely deep enough for the boats, driver had to sometime jump out and push, and the channel was barely wide enough to pass another boat. The town was quite interesting to see, although I was only allowed to visit one of the outlying tourist... More

Good to visit if you have time. If you are going through the boat ride, you must get down at the pagoda, while returning back and after seeing the pagoda, visit this village and try to interact with local.That will make your to the Tonle Sap lake and Kompong Phluk visit fruitful.

I was recommended to go here rather than some of the more touristy alternatives because it is proper Cambodian whilst the other ones are vietnamese villages. A $20 tuk tuk ride which takes about 45 minutes from Siem Reap brings you to the local wharf., sure it smells a bit fishy and isn't the cleanest but this is part of... More

I think I should start by pointing out that this is not a floating village but a stilted one and that there's it sits on dries out in the dry season. We went in December and there was still sufficient water to have to get a boat to visit but some of the village had dried out and we were... More
