Begin your trip with a 45-minute drive into the beautiful countryside, stopping along the way to visit a local village. Upon arrival at Tonle Sap Lake, board a boat for a 1.5-hour ride, watching for some of the migratory birds that can often be seen at the edge of the water. 

Tour the floating village of Kompong Phluk whose name means "Harbor of the Tusks," where everything from police stations to schools float on the water. From February to August, the village is dry, and you'll be treated to the sight of houses on stilts.

Just returned from the tour and it was a great experience and Jose was a superb host. We were as small group of 6 which was just the right size and we stoped at the market on the way which was fascinating. Although it is currently the dry season we were able to see how people of Kompong Phluk live there everyday life at this time which would have been unimaginable if we had visited during the dry season. Thank you Jose for passing on all you knowledge of the area on to us and for a great tour.

They picked me up at the hotel exactly on time. The guide was very friendly and communicative, although his accent made it sometimes hard to understand everything he said. The group (11 in total) was a nice bunch of people from all over the world. The boat trip was nice, I think the tour was well worth my money and time.

Well it’s something new to see but nothing special in the dry season. Also, once arrived on Tonle Sap Lake, there is another trip you can do on a boat in the floated forest for 10$. I suggest to NOT DO IT. It is not a good value for money and a tourist trap. As soon as you go into the forest there are ladies selling stuff and the boat driver doesn’t leave until you buy something! It was quite an uncomfortable situation!!!
