Last day in Phnom Penh

 

On my final day in Phnom Penh I took a late afternoon boat trip on a lovely old rice boat, converted for the purpose of viewing the rivers, their life and of course a sunset……….We started out on the Tonle Sap river, which runs through Phnom Penh and proceeded downstream to the point where it joins the mighty Mekong; we then travelled upstream on the Mekong for a few kilometers to see the Vietnamese floating village……………an amazing sight, all these flimsy looking houses floating on large lengths of bamboo lashed together………a whole community existing on these constructions, mainly by fishing; the Mekong is a rich hunting ground for fishermen……………….

 

 

 

 

The have’s and the have not’s living side by side

This looked like an old bath tub with a customised outboard motor……………

and……………….just a few shots taken while riding in a tuk-tuk on my last day in Phnom Penh……………

The chicken run…………….

and finally…………The Pavilion, the very nice little 20 room hotel that I stayed in while in Phnom Penh…….
