The tour started quite early in the morning and the journey by private minibus, with aircon, was interesting as we were able to see Siem Reap from a different perspective. The road off the highway out to the floating village was undergoing construction so this part was a bit hair-raising. Once at the boat the journey onto Tonle Sap was very interesting. The lake is enormous! On the way back we were able to visit a village and talk to some children who were doing an English language school. This was very poor and the villagers were living in poverty but the children understood the need for education and had future aspirations. A very interesting and thought provoking morning which was made all the better by our very good guide.
