HIGHLIGHTS

  • Row through the flooded forest
  • Visit Pergola and Monk schools
  • Walking or rowing tour through the main street
On this tour we will be exploring the flooded forest and stilted village of Kompong Phluk. Our guide will meet you at your hotel at the tour time and transport you to the boat docks via air conditioned cars or mini van. Along the way we pass through a few smaller villages and than hop on to our traditional long tail riverboat (all boats have the required safety equipment).

We than cruise down the river into the actual township. Depending on the time of year water levels will vary, so we either walk or row through the main street arriving at the Pergola and Monk school. We enjoy a light fruit snack of local fruits and drinks and than proceed into the flooded forest. At the flooded forest the temperature is going to drop 10 degrees so please bring a sweater. We use local and very experienced boat people to row us into the numerous forests. After having explored the flooded forest our other traditional riverboat will be waiting for us to cruise out onto the great Tonle Sap lake (the largest fresh water lake in South East Asia). Seeing Tonle Sap Lake is an awesome sight and more like an inland sea. Many locals will be out there fishing using traditional fishing methods that have not changed much for centuries.

All in all this tour is a great way to experience the famous village of Kompong Phluk and the Flooded forest (in khmer, Kompong Phluk means harbor of the tusks). Kompong Phluk is home to some 2800 people mainly khmers and live in houses towering some 10 mtrs.

We look forward to giving you some cultural insights and an exciting day.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • Is Asia open for tourists?

    Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.

    As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.

     

  • What is the best time to visit Cambodia?

    The high season for tourism in Cambodia is from December to March. While Cambodia's weather is hot and humid all year round, it gets exceptionally hot in April and May. So, visiting the country during these months is not recommended. For additional information, check our post on the best time to visit Cambodia.

     

  • What is the currency of Cambodia?

    Although Cambodian Riel is Cambodia's official currency, most transactions are in US dollars. Several ATMs in Cambodia's cities dispense both US dollars and Riel. While certain credit cards are accepted, cash is still the preferred payment method.

  • Is Cambodia a family-friendly destination?

    Home to diverse settings and friendly people, Cambodia is fascinating for all ages. The colorful markets of Phnom Penh, the floating markets of Mekong and the Sangkae, and the Cambodian temples hidden in lush greenery will interest anyone. Cambodia’s rich culture, tragic war history, and selection of museums are intriguing for the family. 

  • Is English widely spoken in Cambodia?

    Cambodian Khmer is the most spoken language in the country. However, certain minority groups speak English. Most people in the tourist industry and affluent cities such as Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, and Sihanoukville can converse in English to a certain extent. Knowing a few local phrases would be helpful if you plan to explore the country's less-known areas.
