Today, take a break from temples and enjoy an interesting boat trip to visit a fishing community of Kampong Phluk “Harbour of the Tusks” on Tonle Sap Lake, where you will have the opportunity to learn about life on the lake while the tourist masses head to Chong Kneas area. Travel out to Kampong Phluk, a village a bit further away but which receives very fewer tourists. Explore authentic stilted village observing the life of the local fisherman and their families who live amongst the flooded mangrove forest. Enjoy the beautiful scenery dominated by the tranquillity of the lake. Afterwards, experience a hosted lunch by a local family in a village. Take some rest and talk with the family before exploring the city – visiting the craft center of Artisan d’Angkor and/or local market.
