On our last day in Siem Reap, we had requested our guide to take us to a floating village. He took us on a boat trip on Tonlé Sap, a seasonally inundated fresh water lake which is an UNESCO biosphere reserve. This was the lake that maintained the Angkorean empire and to this day, affects the lives of rural population. The houses have been built on stilts to withstand the seasonal surge of the river.
Here’s my photo story of life on the lake.
Have you visited a floating village? What has your experience been like?
