The Tonle Sap River is a tributary to the Mekong and during rainy season the lake expands in size to become the largest freshwater lake in South East Asia, essential in supporting the local population and biodiversity.

During rainy season the village is accessible by boat, but when the water level falls the roads open up.

Our accommodation for the evening at the homestay. A mattress and mosquito net - it was surprisingly comfortable and cool in the night.

In the day the homestay is used a classroom for children from the village - our tour guide was also the teacher.
