I was picked up at 2.20 pm by Holystone Tours to see the Tonle Sap lake/Floating villages. There were 4 people in the group all very friendly.
We requested to go Komplonk Phulk and he agreed. It was a big eye opener. Kymer community is still recovering from the effects of Khmer Rouge and the Pol Pot regime which lead to the deaths of a quarter of the Cambodian population
We saw houses on stilts, floating pigpens, flower market and villagers enjoying their life.
There were few boats practising for the races on Sunday, some were all women racers
The village has a school and monastery, where prayers were taking place. This was very tranquil and we had soft drinks at floating restaurant. Then we headed towards the forest area to see the beautiful sunset from our little boat.
Our guide Vidhyea chhoun, was brilliant and gave us excellent information on almost everything. I really enjoyed my trip to the lake.More
