Kompong Phluk, Siem Reap
(2.6/5 based on 550+ 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.

  • After reading many negative comments about the tour, we were not to go, but at the end we were and we loved it. The tour was very well organized and in no time they asked us tips as they say the comments of others. The only thing that you have to pay separate is the canoe ride through the village which is optional and comes out 5 dollars per person but it's worth completely worth it because the scenery is very nice. We did the tour in the afternoon and the evening on the Lake was great.
