Photos - Cambodia, Siem Reap floating village

I had heard about Cambodia's floating village having seen many on my trip through Vietnam, but I never expected one so big. It could be a town in its own right, incredible that people can live in this way, on floating shacks in water that looks less than pleasant for which they cook, drink, wash and dispose of their personal waste in.

Seeing orphans living in this way, and families stuck on these wooden platoons made me wonder their freedoms. It took me 45 minutes by boat to get here, that's quite a distance. It was another 45 minutes from Siem Reap. So most of your life would be spent here. It made me realise how lucky I really am.
