Kompong Phluk Flooded Forest and 2 Villages Full Day Adventure
When one village is simply not enough we have 2 very different villages to explore on the greatest fresh water lake in S.E Asia, the Tonle Sap, the first village is a true floating village whereas the second village is home mainly to stilted homes and the famous flooded forest, this tour also includes the full crossing of the Tonle Sap lake so we are able to explore more than just the different villages.
We depart from your hotel just before 10am and head to the first floating village, sights that are worth a quick stop along the way are the lotus flower farms, a flower that is deeply important in Buddhism (please note: Depending on the time of year the views of the lotus and rice fields will vary.) Once we are at the port area one of our boats (Princess Tara or Lady Tara) will be waiting to take you on a pleasant cruise into the floating villages.
We then dock with our mother-ship the Queen Tara, lunch and drinks on board the Queen Tara and then back onto the long tail traditional boats for the lake crossing and into the 2nd village of Kompong Phluk, depending on the time of year and the current water levels we will either row through(or if the water levels are low we walk through the treetop canopy walkway), a walk along the main street of Kompong Phluk and visit to the local pergola and the monks training school.
Heading further east along the Kompong Phluk river we pass many more villages and fish markets (Kompong Phluk is mainly a fishing village). Once we exit the river we arrive to our Mini Tara Vans for a comfortable air conditioned trip back into town and back to your hotel.. start time just before 10am and back by 4.30pm.
