Overview
One of the most scenic villages on Tonle Sap Lake, Kompong Phluk is also one of the least visited by tourists. On this tour, learn about local life as you cruise around stilted houses and floating markets, and take a canoe ride through the beautiful flooded forests. Hear commentary from your guide along the way, choose from a morning or afternoon tour, and enjoy hassle-free hotel pickup and drop-off.
What to Expect
Begin your adventure with pickup from your Siem Reap hotel for the roughly 45-minute journey to Kompong Phluk. Depending on the season, you’ll travel by minibus (February to July) or by minibus and boat (August to January). Transfer to a small boat and set sail along the lake, passing stilted houses and schools, floating markets, pagodas, and fishing boats as your guide tells you more about local life, customs, and traditions.
Wet-season visitors can also opt to enjoy a traditional canoe ride around the flooded forests (for an additional expense) and experience the region’s unique ecosystem as you glide between the semi-submerged trees.
Back in Siem Reap, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Nearly great experience

This tour offered a fascinating look into daily life of fisher families in these villages, as well as a short boat ride onto the lake. Be prepared for lots of very poor children running around you and asking for a dollar. We ended up on...More

We enjoyed it!

This tour seems to be very different, depending on what season it is: we did it in the dry season, so there was not much water/lake. However, all the houses were high up on stilts, which also was an unusual experience. If you simply would...More

A very enjoyable tour with an excellent guide

This was a very enjoyable, informative tour. The hotel pick-up/drop-off made it particularly convenient and easy. A stop on the way to the lake gave us a chance to buy some very sweet bananas and other fresh produce. The small boat from the canal to...More

Hi! Your hotel or tour company should give you a confirmation time, of when they will be picking you up, depending on who you booked it through. It’s usually an hour or two before the start of the tour. You can message the... More
