A village that floats

Kampong Phluk or the Floating Village is a cluster of stilt houses built upon the flood plains of Lake Tonle Sap. The villagers life is based on the ebb and flow of this mammoth lake. There is a school, courthouse and police building on stilts in this community all submerged in water. It's worth the trip to hire a boat for the morning for a close up look on the lakeside village life.
