Kompong Phluk, a floating village mounted above the banks of the Tonle-Sap-Great Lake and is home to different families eking out their living on what is considered one of the richest inland-fisheries in the world. When you visit you’ll get the best insight into the fascinating lifestyle of the people whose livelihood entirely depends upon the flow and ebb of the Tonle Sap Lake.
When you arrive at this floating village, you can visit the restaurants, shops and schools, all of which are moored above the Tonle Sap Lake. You can also visit the pagoda and meet the local monks, then board a small oar-boat for a tour to the inundated forest.
