Houses on the water in Kampong Phlouk
|Province||Siem Reap Province|
|District||Prasat Bakong District|
Kampong Phluk (Khmer: កំពង់ភ្លុក) is a commune in Siem Reap Province in northern-central Cambodia. It is a village built on stilts on the Tonle Sap. The name means "Harbor of the Tusks". The community largely depends on fishing for survival, spending Cambodia's wet season (May - October) fishing. During the dry season (November - April) as the river thins due to receding water, many turn to farming to supplement their income. Tourism, which started in the village approximately 10 years ago, is also a growing part of the local economy.
