This tour will take you into an enriching cultural immersion of Tonle Sap Lake called Kampong Phluk Village. Learn more about the ecological and economic significance of Tonle Sap Lake to the Cambodians. Catch a glimpse of the uncommon village life and on return will visit The Artisan School and drop at the Old Market free for shopping before taking you back to your hotel.
What to Wear
The sandy soil on the steps of the temples can create quite a slip hazard. We strongly suggest you wear sturdy footwear. Please wear protective clothing, hat and sunscreen.
In the morning visit The Great Tonle Sap Lake (8:00AM – 12:00PM)
The great Tonle Sap Lake is the richest fresh water fishing ground in the world, a national treasure producing an ever-changing landscape. The communities that live around the margins of the lake cope with huge seasonal variations in water levels by building their homes on floating bamboo rafts or 30ft stilts. It is well worth the extra effort to get away from the touristy village of Kampong Pluk to the more genuine stilted villages – or Chong Kneas (dependent on water levels) – for an understanding of contemporary lake life.
Take the opportunity to pause at the stilted houses to see learn how a subsistence fishing family lives, before continuing by boat along the margins of the lake. While you explore the life on the water we will have prepared a picnic lunch for you to enjoy on-board while absorbing the atmosphere of this unique locality.
Also, please note that in the dry season the boat trip is not guaranteed it will be available due to the level of water.
