    For us the most emotional experience ever.

    Opinions will certainly diverge when I write this now. The visit to the settlement, the starting point for the trip across the lake, was simply unbeatable. Some people will see it differently, but for us the contact with the locals during the one and a half hour walk through the town was an incredibly stirring experience. Just going to school and contacting the children was awesome as former teachers. Every day you should show our children these living conditions. ..... and then seeing the bright and friendly faces is enough to be happy. Of course not all, because their lives are much more difficult than that of our children. We could have spent the whole day there, but decided to send our annual charity donations to this school from now on.

    I put in because we fell out of engine on the Tonle Sap lake. A crossing that was to last 1:30 lasted 3 hours so that we could not take the boat trip in the Mangrove or take time to visit the big floating village !! But at the start everything was perfect and the end also on the Queen Tara with a superb sunset !! I still recommend going out .. the breakdown will not happen every time !!
