The massive seasonal variations in the water level of the Tonle Sap Lake makes A floating village a practical idea. A floating village is quite literally a floating village - schools, markets, houses, businesses... they all rise and fall with the Tonle Sap!
The Flooded Forest at Kompong Phluk is a mangrove forest on the Tonle Sap Lake floodplain. During the wet season when the forest is flooded only the tips of the trees are visible, whilst during the dry season the flooded forest is not very flooded at all!
