Tours of Kompong Phluk are a bit pricier than the Chong Khneas tours, but they are well worth the difference. Kompong Phluk is a set of villages based on the floodplain of the Tonle Sap Lake, near Siem Reap. There are about 3,000 villagers, most of who live in stilted houses. The people depend largely on fishing and tourism for their incomes.
The Angkor Focus Travel & Tour of Kompong Phluk will begin at 8am, when we pick you up from your Hotel or Guesthouse in an air-conditioned vehicle. Our friendly and knowledgeable tour guides speak English, Thai & Japanese (and Khmer of course), and they will ensure that you enjoy your tour, pointing out areas of local interest along the way and answering any questions you may have. It takes about 20 minutes to reach the port of Chong Khneas, and upon arrival we will exit the vehicle and jump onto one of the Mini Tara’s – smaller boats with life jackets and driven by experienced and safe local drivers.
On route to Kompong Phluk we will make two stops. The first will be the GECKO Environmental Education Centre, which provides a whole host of useful information about the human societies & unique ecology of the Tonle Sap. The GECKO centre itself is a floating structure – and is a favourite amongst tourists who want to learn a bit more about life on the lake. The second stop will be the Crocodile & Fish Farm at Chong Khneas. If catfish, crocodiles and large snakes don’t interest you, there is a souvenir shop and a viewing deck on board for you to purchase some presents for loved ones or take a few photos.
The boat ride through Chong Khneas will allow you to see ordinary Cambodians going about their daily life in the floating village. Fishermen, boat-makers, markets, schools, spirit houses and waving children are always in plentiful supply on this mesmerizing scenic route, and it is not uncommon for the scenery of Chong Khneas to provoke silence on the Mini Tara, as customers take in the sights and sounds that surround them. Once the trip through Chong Khneas is complete, your boat will begin the journey across the Great Tonle Sap Lake to the Stilted Houses & Flooded Forest of Kompong Phluk.
Upon arrival at Kompong Phluk you’ll jump out of the Mini Tara and into a smaller rowing boat. You’ll then row through the flooded forest, and through / up to the stilted houses of the floating village. During wet season, this area will be completely submerged, whilst in the dry season, the stilted houses will tower up to six meters above. After you’ve toured the school and the pagoda in the centre of the village, you’ll begin your journey back across the Tonle Sap to the Tara Boat – the biggest boat on the Tonle Sap Lake.
There you will enjoy a well-deserved 3-course meal and 2 free cold drink. Afterwards you can lie back in a hammock, take a seat on the viewing deck or get your photo taken at the steering wheel. Watch as other tour groups drive past on their rickety little boats whilst you chill out, relax, and enjoy the comfort & luxury of the biggest boat on the lake. At about 3:15pm you’ll leave the Tara and head back to the port at Chong Khneas where your air-conditioned vehicle will be waiting to transport you directly home to your Hotel or Guesthouse.
