A trip to Kampong Phluk floating village can easily be one of the most remarkable experiences in Cambodia. Tonle Sap Lake was registered as a Unesco Biosphere Reserve in 1997 due to a variety of wildlife and now it is home to more than 10,000 inhabitants of the three floating villages. Kampong Phluk is considered as the least tourist one, so you can get a chance to see a local lifestyle, which still remains unspoiled by the tourism industry. The best time to visit floating village is the wet season from May to October, when most of the buildings stand high above the water-line. During the dry season, the water goes away so you'll be exploring the village on foot.​
