Tonlé Sap

Tonlé Sap is Asia’s biggest fresh water lake with an area of roughly 2,700 km². Seasonally, at the end of rainy season (or “muddy season” as the Cambodians call it) the surface will increase to ca. 16,000 km². Also, with the seasons the adjoined villages go from a dry main street and all houses built on huge stilts to like floating villages, the kind we know from Vietnam or Thailand. Being here in the “dusty season” of course I’ve seen everything on stilts – these are amazing constructions, especially considering they also have to withstand water about half of the year.
