Life on Tonle Sap lake

Tonle Sap lake is a huge fresh water lake near Siem Reap in Cambodia. About 20,000 people live on it in floating or stilt houses on the edge and on an island. Several shops were in the village and also along the way. The lake depth varies by as much as 10 meters between the dry and wet season. Needless to say they do lots of fishing.  You can see a wide variety of boats.
