Kampong Phluk river village was hands down my favourite spot in Cambodia. A little community reachable only by boat, where people live in wooden houses on high pillars, adjusting their lives and daily activities to the levels of the river. The village is practically unreachable for almost 5 months of the year, which becomes a time when the people who otherwise work as boat captains transporting passengers become full time fishermen. Full of curious little eyes and play, all in complete symbiosis with the surrounding water – the place was as real as real gets. We stayed for sunset, when the few other tourists had already left the place, when the adults started cooking and preparing for prayer, and when the kids came out to play.
