A Cambodian boat driver is assisted by schools of children upon take-off to the Floating Village on Tonle Sap. Poverty is rampant in and about the City of Siem Reap, home of the famous Angkor Wat Archaeological Park. Its effects were particularly manifest in the unfortunately still-necessary scams that keep this village afloat.

Location: Lake Tonle Sap, Siem Reap, Cambodia
