Kampong Phluk, one of the floating villages at Tonle Sap Lake near Siem Reap. Visit Kompong Phluk village with its houses standing on stilts and board a piroqua to discover the seasonally flooded forest.
Depart to The Tonle Sap lake one of the world most productive bodies of fresh water. In the wet season, the Tonle Sap Lake swells to 12,000 km². During the dry half of the year, the lake shrinks to as small as 2500 km², draining into the Tonle Sap River. Each year, millions of fish come to spawn in the seasonally flooded forest surrounding the lake, attracting a myriad of water birds as well as people, who have settled in villages along the shores and who live with the rhythm of the water. This ecosystem was classified as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1997.
Take a boat trip around the lake to visit Kompong Phluk village with its houses standing on stilts and board a piroqua to discover the seasonally flooded forest and get a taste for life ruled by monsoonal rains and water-based agriculture.
