Kompong Phluk, Siem Reap
(2.6/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Explore the floating fishing villages on the shores of Tonle Sap Lake at Kompong Phluk. As you tour the area by boat, immerse yourself in the traditions and lifestyle of the locals, who depend on the lake's bounty. The environmental and education center provides an abundance of information regarding the harbor's natural wonders, its ecology, and how humans influence and maintain the region. Explore the floating city's stilted structures, packed with fishers, craftspeople, boat-makers, and peculiar markets supplied by local crocodile and fish farms. Prepare for haggling and begging, as many retailers and solicitors can get rather pushy. Put Kompong Phluk into our Siem Reap holiday planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
