Kompong Phluk is a floating village, it is a permanent community that has based its economy on fishing and is surrounded by flooded forest. During the dry season, you will be able to sight stilt houses rising up to 8 meters in the air while in the wet season, the water rises to within one meter of the edifices. To reach this village you need to travel about 40 minutes from the center of Siem Reap along the main road and then down a "side road".
You arrive at the start of the estuary from the river to Tonle Sap, It's interesting to see how the people live. There houses are on high stilts, but none touching the water. It is really nice to see all the houses on stilts and 'normal live proceeding'.
I would highly recommend also a boat tour towards the gigantic lake Tonle Sap.
