Kompong Phluk Village and Tonle Sap Lake Half-Day Tour From Siem Reap

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Discover the beautiful village of Kompong Phluk with this unique small-group tour and experience the real Cambodian village way of life. Travel by road and boat to this stilted village situated on Tonle Sap Lake. This tour offers you the chance to see how families go about their daily lives and adapt to living by Tonle Sap Lake throughout the seasons. In addition, you will venture out to the nearby floating villages situated on the lake with your local professional guide. This tour is for people who are short on time but still wish to experience the beautiful flooded forest, Kompong Phluk and village life on the lake.
  • Get views of Tonle Sap Lake, Kompong Phluk, and the flooded forests
  • Learn about local life and customs from you guide
  • Hassle-free round-trip transportation from Siem Reap
  • Small-group tour means extra attention from your guide 
What to Expect
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.

It is quite a ride going here, road is bumby, then you'll take a boat to go to the village. The place and the culture are quite unique, though. I love the small boat ride later in the tour, where we toured around a forest with monkeys. Then the sunset (the afternoon half day

An excellent tour of a local market, and walk through the stilted houses in Kompong Phluk. Less tourists and a good authentic experience into how the locals live. The boat trip and stop at the floating restaurant for a beer was also good.
