Life on the Lake
Kompong Phluk is a floating village locaed in Tonle Sap, the largest freshwater lake in Cambodia and southeast Asia. The town is set on stilts to protect homes when the water rises and washes away the "main street" strip of land during the rainy season. Many villagers rely on the lake for commercial fishing and harvesting rice.
