IN MEMORY OF THE KILLING FIELDS

Somewhere in the town premises is a memorial for the innocent people who died in the hands of the savage Pol Pot regime in 1974-79.




Bones collected from a nearby killing field are now in a stupa.










Nearby is a temple






A surviving victim of a landmine perhaps...

ANGKOR NATIONAL MUSEUM

I did not bother to check out what's inside the museum. According to the cab driver, I'm going to see the real thing up close anyway (i.e. the temples), and with limited time in Siem Reap, it will be a waste of precious time. I'd rather go and see as many temples as I can.








Adjacent to the museum is a museum mall

BOAT CRUISE TO TONLE SAP LAKE

Some 15 kilometers from Siem Reap's town center is a boat jetty for a river cruise to Southeast Asia's largest lake, Tonle Sap. The river only appears on dry season because the entire low-lying adjacent area becomes the Tonle Sap floodplain during the rainy season.

The jetty area...

After a 45-minute cruise on the river, the Tonle Sap shows up... It's such a huge lake that you can't see land on the horizon.




Floating restaurants are making good business with tourists...

LIFE AT THE RIVERBANK

The river to Tonle Sap is full of mesmerizing sights along its banks. It's amazing that despite the hostile behavior of the lake during the monsoon season, some people still choose to stay and make a living along the banks of the river.

THE VIETNAMESE FLOATING VILLAGE

At a section of the river near its mouth to Tonle Sap, is a floating Vietnamese village. My boatman tour guide said that for some reason, the Vietnamese who managed to sneak into Cambodia some decades ago converged in this area and has since then flourished into a self-contained floating community.

During the monsoon season when Tonle Sap overflows to a level that will submerge even the vegetation, all the floating structures are towed inland towards the nearest bank.

THE BOAT PEOPLE

Cambodians and Vietnamese alike, living in or along the banks of the tributary river of Tonle Sap requires a floating mode of transport.. Here are some astonishing revelations of how they move through the river to go about their day to day activities.
