Floating Village in Cambodia

The first place we ventured to was a floating village. Both Kevin and I were skeptical of this as we weren't sure if it was going to be a tourist trap. We drove with Mr. Neak as he explained the surroundings (we understood approximately 50% of what he was saying). Once we arrived to the area we hopped on a private boat and floated on down the river. All of the houses are mobile (imagine a trailer park on water) and rise with the change in water levels throughout the year. Its pretty crazy seeing a pool hall, basketball court, schools, hospitals and even pig pens floating on water. We really loved this and were so glad that Mr. Neak took us here.
