Image of The Week: Cambodia – Paddling Boy of Chong Kneas

After a few days of exploring the temples of Angkor Wat, we needed a bit of a break. So we organised a trip down to the Chong Kneas floating village just of shore, on Lake Tonle Sap. The village is only a short 20 minutes moto ride away from Siem Reap, and well worth the visit. On arrival we arranged a boat to take us around the village, and I spotted this young boy making his way between houses in what looks like a shallow plastic washing bucket. He seemed quite at home whilst paddling, and no doubt it would come natural to him, as he’s been brought up surrounded by a world of water, and not land.

    I reakon your on the money Andi. Kid’s in this village would have to learn to swim before they can walk, otherwise they probably wouldn’t live to long.
