This was a really enjoyable trip. We booked through the hotel. They took us on a 30-45min drive (depending on where you’re staying) to Kompong Phluk on Tonlesap Lake. This is a BIG lake! Our hotel driver bought our tickets (approx. $20 for 4 people) and you get into a small boat, which then transfers you to another boat on... More

We arranged a tuk tuk through our hotel in Siem Reap for 15USD from 2pm to return after sunset (18kms each way takes almost an hour). The "big boat" was 25USD each. The small boat was 5USD each (optional). For a couple - we did not think the experience was quite worth 90USD. We went on this tour in the... More

My last visit for this floating village was on December. It's only about an hour away from Siem Reap by car. It was such a great experience. You could see daily life of people living on the floating houses. Especially, their daily routine. There are floating school, church, pagoda, restaurants, even crocodile farm is floating. Most likely everything float in... More

We took this day-tour in February with pretty low water, giving a view off the underside of the stilt houses bordering the lake. Like much of Cambodia it is subsistence living with no sanitation, but if you want a taste of real life you'll get it. After motoring down a narrow and shallow canal emptying into Tonle Sap, you'll transfer... More

What an enjoyable few hours. I can't say much for the colour of the water (it was also the dry season), but the village on stilts was impressive. I kept wondering what it would look like when the Lake rises a few metres and everyone would boat around? We had lunch on a floating restaurant, enjoyed the extra boat trip... More

We are in a group of 4 visited Kompong Phluk in January 2017. Initially we were happy with the service of the boatman as he was introducing the beauty of Kompong Phluk to us. The terrible thing came when he brought us to a floating station and forced us to join the mangrove tour. We rejected to join the tour... More

A tour by the floating villages may be quite interesting, but there are better tours that this one. This site is run by a private company and only a very small percentage of the 25 dollars paid for the tour will find it's way to the villagers/boat drivers. It does sometimes feel like an exploitation of poverty, somewhat like a... More

We came here as part of a private tour with a guide, travelling in a mini van. We visited here after going to first to Banteay Srey and then to Kbal Spean. It made for a really enjoyable day out. We took a boat upriver to the village and motored around the tall, rickety stilt houses. It was really fascinating... More
