We visited a water village near Siem Reap where 1000s of enhabitants do not go onto the land. They live entirely on the water. Their schools, stores, homes, jobs and recreation is all on the water. They are very fortunate as the poverty and living conditions on the land in that area is almost inconceivable. These serious young students were paddling to their school on a nearby houseboat.

Location: Mekong River reservoir near Siem Reap
