We had half day off in Siem Reap and our driver recommended the boat tour to see the Floating Villages (one Vietnamese, the other Cambodian). After driving 15-20min we reached the place where we could hire the boat (looks pretty bad, old). there are hundreds of boats and we noticed that they hired one boat per group. We were 2 in a boat for 20pax. We were absolutely not impressed by the surrounds (poor, dry, not for tourists I guess). So, after much hesitation, we paid USD20 pax. It took 20-30min in the boat to reach the open lake. Then what a surprise, a huge lake, you can't see where it ends and the Floating Villages. JUST GREAT. People living in such condition! That is real life in Cambodia. There was no market to see, things to buy. Eventually we reached a bigger boat where we could see the crocodiles underneath the houses and buy a Coke. Loved it!
