Could've been better
, Nov 2019
The visit wasn't bad, nice variation to seeing the Angkor Wat temples, but we felt it was overpriced for what it was and felt like we were either wasting time or faced with a bit of a tourist trap. Firstly we were told to wait in our hotel lobby between 1-2pm. I've been on plenty of day trips before and have always been given a 15-30min window of pick up. Not only were we unsure when we'll be picked up, these guys arrived at 2pm - and we were first on the pick-ups. The boat ride was fine, good to see the houses on stilts (NOT floating), but then you had to either pay $5pp for a canoe ride or wait for 30-40 minutes. Waste of time. It wouldn't have been bad if this was part of the overall cost. The ride into the lake was good, but again, tourist trap. The boat sat there while smaller boat vendors came to sell drinks or snacks. Sure, it a way to make a living but at least give a bit of a ride around a small section of the lake first.
Good Adventure

Very Informative

Our guide, Jose, was fantastic - he was a wealth of information on the lake and the villages on the lake and his English was very good.

I really wasn't expecting much from the visit to the Village but it turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip to Siem Reap. The whole trip was wonderful led by a terrific local guide who really showed us behind the scenes. Highly recommended
I would recommend this to anyone

We all had a wonderful time, our guide Nak was a local, very knowledgable and explained cultural practices very clearly and too the time to explain the basics of the religions also. It was great to be able to support the local as well by donating to the school, and buying books for the children. There was no pressure at all, just an opportunity . Thank you for a wonderful experience it was in my top 2 experiences in Siem Reap.
nice trip and interesting experience

it was a half day trip to a fishing village during which our tour guide Mr. Whaut told us a lot about the history of a region, about its kings and their capitals and temples. Local women from the village were riding boats through mangrove forest, which was very pleasant but too close to the main river. I imagined a deeper route. In general, if this was a longer trip, I would love to learn more about fishing practices of people inhabiting the village, about their life, if it is possible to organize in a non-intrusive way. Overall, was truly fascinating to see the place so unique and fragile, if one may think about the inevitable impact of globalization and climate change on this and other similar communities in the world.

Just when you think that Cambodia could not get any more beautiful, enter Kompong Phluk. Kompong Phluk is a colorful, floating fishing village outside of Siem Reap. Our tour guide, Vanlonh, captured our hearts from the very start. Vanlonh is warm and charming with an infectious smile. He takes great pride in his job and it shows he is a stand out among other tour guides. Our boat ride to Kompong Phluk on Tonle Sap Lake was picturesque and relaxing. Upon arriving at Kompong Phluk, we were met with smiling faces. The townspeople are very welcoming. In fact, I happened upon a one-room schoolhouse where elementary school-aged children were busy learning. The teacher noticed me and invited me in to speak with his students in English. Their command of the English language was impressive...far and away better than my Khmer. : Opt in on the canoe ride through the mangrove fields. It was easily the highlight of our day. Our canoe had the most adorable little copilot he smiled and played as his mother navigated us through the mangroves. What a treat!

Not worth doing. We went during down season but wasn't told this. The boat did not feel safe and we were not given life jackets. The water smells and is very dirty. For about 30min there is nothing to see. I do not recommend doing this during down season and it felt like we wasted a day.

I don't know where to start... The transfer arrived at 8.30 - I was waiting in the lobby for 1 hour, because they couldn't tell what will be the order of the pickups. After a 40 minutes uncomfortable ride in an uncomfortable bus: we arrived to a place what supposed to be a river.. but not. It was a dirty, little puddle. I really don't understand why someone organizing a tour to see the FLOATING VILLAGE, where NO FLOATING VILLAGE. In the dry season no water. : So.. It looks just dirty and miserable. Aftre the tour they took us to a restaurant in the lake which was not in the original program for eating. But it was 11 o'clock. Vanna our tour guide were brilliant and tried to make it more enjoyable, but nothing to see really. :

Had a great experience with the village of Kompong Phluk and wish I could have had more time there and less on Tonle Sap Lake, but maybe that's because I love people. The guide was great, charismatic and very cool.
