  • Description :

    Kampong Phluk is a commune and village in Siem Reap province in northern-central Cambodia. It is a village built on stilts on the Tonle Sap. The name means Harbor of the Tusks.

    The community largely depends on fishing for survival, spending Cambodia is wet season (May - October) fishing. During the dry season (November - April) as the river thins due to receding water, many turn to farming to supplement their income. Tourism, which started in the village approximately 10 years ago, is also a growing part of the local economy.
