Tonlé Sap Lake – Floating Village
As the largest fresh water lake in South East Asia and crowned with the UNESCO biosphere, I would expect lots of interesting scenes at Tonlé Sap Lake.
It was past 6pm by the time we reached Lake. The sky was covered with dark cloud.
The light condition was poor and there wasn’t much activities by the water edge.
I was a bit disappointed with only a few floating houses, and over commercialized operation.
I found that the roadside kampung with houses on high stilt were more interesting that the floating village.
If you have limited time and do not wish to spend USD15 per pax, you could skip the visit to the Floating Village. It is better to stop at the road side (on the way to Tonlé Sap Lake and visit the fishing village. The poor experience I had could largely due to the weather condition. I guess a good sunset could make a lot of difference.
