Tonle Sap

This was something completely new for me - a floating village. The waterway we travelled down to enter the Tonle Sap Lake was populated on both sides by floating homes, stores, workshops and even a pool hall. As the lake is tidal, the floating village moves seasonally with the tides. Apparently many of the people on the boats are of Vietnamese origin. The lake is the largest in Asia. When we reached the lake we were unable to see to the far side - the muddy brown water was the only thing that suggested that we were not at sea. A number of fishermen were out on the lake. Fish is a part of the staple diet of many Cambodians, and this lake is a very valuable source of food and water for the country.
