    Kampong Phluk the Floating Village

    November 23 in Cambodia ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Wir waren gestern in Kampong Phluk. So etwas haben wir noch nie gesehen. Die Häuser stehen zum Teil auf 10 Meter hohen Stelzen. Und während des Monsums reicht das Wasser fast bis an die obere Etage. Ein sehr beeindruckender Ort... aber schaut es euch selbst an. Ach ja und als Bonbon gab es noch den Sonnenuntergang.Read more

    Floating village

    March 29 in Cambodia ⋅ ⛅ 34 °C

    Yesterday we took a tour of Kampong Phluk, a floating village on a river near Siem Reap. However because it is dry season the village is mostly not floating, instead is dry land with buildings on incredibly high stilts. The wet season starts in June and then the water from the river rises so high the whole area becomes sunk in about 2m of water.

    We had a tour from a guy who grew up there, but now lives in the city. It used to be a place thriving with fish and that is what made people live there, but now it is overpopulated and they have eaten all the fish, so it is far less prosperous. And I find myself wondering why they would still live somewhere so difficult.

    It was a smelly place, they were drying tiny shrimps in the sun. The market was a bike that rides around with fruit and veg hanging off it everywhere, in the wet season it becomes a boat instead.

    We were taken on a small boat to a floating restaurant and watched sunset there.

    It was an interesting day, but porbably would be more charming in the wet season when the village is afloat!

    Siem Reap - Floating village

    March 18 in Cambodia ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Not a comfortable flight but landed in Cambodia, Siem Reap.

    Time to get a grab and check into our hostel

    Check in time is only 2pm so time for breakfast.
    Walking around Siem Reap, we find a variety of food stalls, restaurants and a lot of westernized areas.

    Settling for a eggs benedict, not the best I've had, but fills the gap.

    Renting a tricycle named the batmobile.
    We venture to the floating village of Kampong Phluk.

    Paying tourists prices once again, We head to our boat.

    It's hard to imagine how these people live sufficiently and in harmony the way they do.
    We all should be humble for our blessings.

    Our Bruce Wayne, takes us to the angkor ticket office so we can have a early morning start.

    Once dropped off in the famous pub street, we try to experience the street culture - from fish cleaning your feet, to random weed deals, and rolled ice cream to eating fried insects and curried frog.
