Kompong Phluk, Siem Reap

2.4
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.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Kompong Phluk village. It is a unique once in a lifetime experience if you have never been, it is a must see. Many houses, families, and pets all living on the water. S...  more »
  • This visit was part of our 2nd day guided tour. The only reason I give it a 4 rather than a 5 is it's a long drive from the temples and we didn't get off the boat to see inside any of the buildings (t...  more »
  • Nice to see these houses and the life that flows slowly on a river. Although the price is a bit steep, $20 per person, its definitely worth it for those with more days in siem reap and a break from visits to temples

Where to stay in Siem Reap

Siem Reap offers attractive accommodations on every budget. Inexpensive family-run guesthouses provide clean, private rooms with access to the host's wealth of information. Hostels catering to backpackers cluster around the old market squares. Four- and five-star resorts welcome guests to retreat from the city into sleek modern interiors or rustic village havens, while mid-range hotels with sparkling pools fill in the spectrum. All can be booked online in advance, but with the abundant options at hand you shouldn't have much trouble finding a room upon arrival.
