Day 1: Siem Reap / Kampong Phluk (D)
In the afternoon, pick up from the hotel and transfer to the boat pier for the boat trip to the fishing community of Kampong Phluk, where you can experience the traditional houses on the stilt, flooded forest and daily life of the fishermen on the lake of Tonle Sap.
Kampong Phluk is a cluster of three villages of stilted houses built within the floodplain of the Tonle Sap about 16 km southeast of Siem Reap. The villages are primarily Khmer and have about 3000 inhabitants between them. Flooded mangrove forest surrounds the area and is home to a variety of wildlife including crab-eating macaques. During the dry season when the lake is low, the buildings in the villages seem to soar atop their 6-meter stilts exposed by the lack of water. At this time of year many of the villagers move out onto the lake and build temporary stilted houses. In the wet season when water level rises again, the villagers move back to their permanent houses on the floodplain, the stilts now hidden under the water. Kampong Phluk's economy is, as one might expect, based in fishing, primary in shrimp harvesting.
Visit the visit, pagoda and school and have an interaction with local people. Then enjoy kayaking along the flooding forests in the village and sunset on the lake over Tonle Sap.
