Kompong Luong is one of the biggest floating villages in the picturesque backdrop of Tonle Sap. It is an extraordinary Cambodian tourist attraction and once you pass Tonle Sap's mouth, it is found at about 30 kilometers into the lake on the southwest shore. Have in mind that the exact location of Kompong Luong changes in accordance with the season: in the wet season the floating village is moved to the banks to avoid storms, and in the dry it is moved into the open lake as water level gets lower. The floating village should have 1-4 meters of water beneath the bamboo foundations.
Actually, Kompong Luong is not a village. It is an entire commune of five floating villages in Pursat province, Cambodia. As the other such villages in the country, the settlement started as a tiny fishing village. The fish is main source of protein in Cambodia and land comes at a price. Today, Kompong Luong inhabitants consist of about 1,200 families, which bring the total population to nearly 7,000 people. Therefore, the villages are equipped with services that are found anywhere, such as schools, shops, markets, hospitals, restaurants, garages, petrol stations, etc. Due to its remote location, Kompong Luong does not receive as many tourists as other floating villages. You will need to take a boat to get there. The nearest port is Pursat town and boats from there cost US$3-US$5 depending on the number of people. During the dry season (March to July) the boats often ecounter difficulties when crossing the lake because of the low water level. Two hours are enough to visit Kompong Luong and arrive back to dry land.
