We booked though our travel agent so we had our own car guide and private 1 hour tour on the lake so we could enjoy this unique village experience- culturally it a bit of time warp - doubt things have changed much in 100 years...More
I asked my guide and tuk tuk driver to take me to a floating village that i had read about in lonely planet but it was farther away. I asked my guide if there was a non tourist exploited floating village closer in. He took...More
There is no floating village. All there is to see are the houses of the villagers. They also say you are going through the flooded forrest (Prey Kuh) . Well even that is not true and ofcourse the lame excuse is that the water is...More
We pay 25$ per person for the boat ticket. We got a private big boat to get to the village and then have to change to a small boat for getting through the forest. If you come in the evening you will enjoy the sunset....More
We booked this tour in advance, but wished we hadn't bothered. As others have reported, it seems to be a tourist trap - with lots of people trying to relieve you of your money for an "attraction" that really doesn't stand comparison with villages on...More
We'd had a wonderful day with our amazing tuk tuk driver ( Mr bean..find him in Facebook) taking us around the Cambodian countryside, visiting out of the say villages and people.

This is a review for Hello Bird Tours to Kompong Phluk although I’m sure many of the other half day tours here work the same way.
We were told to be ready for pick up for 1:30pm (bearing in mind the tour was advertised for...More

It cost $30 USD including the mangrove / forest boat ride. It takes about and hour to get there from town by Tuk tuk. It's definitely not worth it, I would highly recommend against it. Just a scam to get money from tourists... More
It cost $30 USD including the mangrove / forest boat ride. It takes about and hour to get there from town by Tuk tuk. It's definitely not worth it, I would highly recommend against it. Just a scam to get money from tourists. It was pretty disappointing and quite sad to see how the villages live in poverty, riding through the village almost felt like they put on show.
