Also I do not mind to support Eco Tourism activities and Kompong Pluk is such a place where you have to pay an entrance fee and the money goes to a large degree to the local community.
Water levels were getting low during my trip to Angkor, so we chose to move this visit to the beginning of my time to ensure we can still travel by boat. My tour guide did surprisingly well in avoiding other tourists and we had the place almost to ourselves.

My tour guide knew exactly what I wanted to do and experience and he presented it to me in just the right way. My initial doubts about him as being a "second choice" guide were all gone by the time we reached the Hotel!
