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.
