The trip to Tonle Sap took about an hour toward the northern causeway.  We enjoyed a stop at the local market as well as stopping along the way to photograph the village.

I loved taking photos of the people especially the children.  The people were very receptive and usually laughed when I showed them their photo. On the whole, the people were friendly and receptive toward tourists.

We continued through the village on a narrow dirt road – stopping every once in a while to get a photo.  Here are a few:

20150617-IMG_1477We often saw these party tents along the road.  They are usually tents for weddings, engagements and funeral ceremonies. It was strange that it was placed right next to a road or main street. If it was a wedding – pictures of the bride and groom were shown at the front of the tent.

We finally arrived at the lake.  The water was very low.  In fact, one time we got stuck close to the waterway bank. The boat we took was okay.  At least, it had some shade but we did see better boats where you could be higher up.  As I said, I think the company did a lot of the things on the cheap side. Being down so low – our cameras, equipment and clothes got covered with mud spots.  One time, the water actually came over the side.  Here are the photos I took:

This boat was similar to the one we rode in.
