Where is the floating village?

  • Tonle Sap, one of the freshwater lakes in Cambodia and the largest lake in the region, is home to hundreds of floating towns.
  • The size of the lake changes throughout the year, which is one of the reasons why there is a floating village in this part of the world.
  • The lake is considered the largest freshwater lake in Asia and the largest freshwater floodplain in the world due to its expansion during the rainy season, which causes it to cover an area of 31,000 square kilometers.

How many Floating village in Cambodia?

  • According to National authorities, there are over 170 floating villages on the lake, all of which are perched precariously atop tall stilts. In 1997, the lake was put on the list of biosphere reserves maintained by the United Nations.

Kampong Phluk Floating village INFO:

At Kampong Phluk, the majority of the homes in these villages are built on stilts. 

The village’s name translates to “harbor of the tusks,” referring to the three towns that line this region’s main entrance to Tonle Sap Lake.

The distance from Siem Reap is just over 30 kilometers, making it an excursion that can be easily completed in half a day. Compared to traveling to some of the other communities, the river trip and the road trip are rather quick and easy. 

From the village to the lake. Because the lake is the most important location, a personal ferry service will take you there after passing through the village. 

The community relies primarily on fishing and shrimp farming to provide for its members, although during the dry season, they also gather some crops from the land. As Kampong Phluk is a working village, most people who live there are focused on their profession, completely separate from the tourism industry buzzing past their doors. 

Local life. It may be interesting to go right past the locals’ houses to get a glimpse of another way of life, but it may also feel quite invasive. As we said earlier, consider that the residents are not involved in the industry, nor do they benefit from it. As a result, there are no general activities that tourists may generally undertake in Kampong Phluk.

A genuine experience. A local guide can guide take you through the mangroves or flooded forest in one of the nearby tiny boats. In addition, a few restaurants are floating, and visiting this area helps the local tourism business in many ways.
