WHAT IS KOMPONG PHLUK
Located in Siem Reap, Cambodia, Kompong Phluk (sometimes spelled Kampong Phluk) is a collection of three floating villages totaling somewhere between 2000
3000 residents. It is it located near the Tonle Sap Lake making it a convenient home for fishermen. Kompong Phluk has the largest mangrove forest in the region (called the flooded forest) as it is under water for part of the year. Kompong Phluk and the greater Tonle Sap lake is a UNESCO Biosphere reserve and contains unique plant species, fish, and animals, many of which find themselves endangered.

KOMPONG PHLUK HISTORY

Before the Khmer Rouge, Kompong Phluk was not an organized village. Instead, it was a collection of fishermen and their families who lived near the lake. This community existed until the Khmer Rouge arrived in Siem Reap in 1975. These soldiers burned down floating village homes and moved families to central work sites. After the Khmer Rouge, families began returning to the area to resume their lives as fishermen.

The floating village was a difficult place to live in the 1980’s due to a lack of essential services and Khmer Rouge remnants, but it started to improve in the 1990’s when aid organizations began working in the village. They improved roads, built schools, taught fishing and conservation and other essential tasks. Starting in the 2000’s residents worked to develop an ecotourism site to showcase the village’s unique floating homes, vast mangrove forests, and Tonle Sap lake. Many residents now earn a living in the tourism economy.
