Kampong Phluk is a 'floating' fishing village on the Tonle
Sap River, which flows between the Tonle Sap Lake and
the Meekong River at Phnom Penh in Cambodia. Most of
the inhabitants are Vietnamese, who came to Cambodia
when Vietnam intervened in the fight against the Khmer
Rouge. The river is remarkable because it flows in
different directions at different times of the year.
