03. KOMPONG KLEANG AND BEANG MELEA
Kompong Kleang floating village
In the morning we drive east to Dom Dek village. Leaving the main road we continue south towards a surreal atmosphere of the village on stilts at Kompong Kleang: a long dirt path lined with houses built on stilts that exceed 10 m in height to survive the flooding during the rainy season.
Observe the daily life of the villagers dedicated to fishing-related activities which, as stuck in time, have presumably been carried out in the same way for centuries. Later we embark on a private wooden boat for the trip on the canal that flows into the Tonle Sap lake.
Continuing further we reach the floating village: a real community that lives and works on the water. In addition to private homes there are schools, shops, workshops and floating restaurants.
In the afternoon we continue to Beang Melea temple, one of the last Hindu temples built before the introduction of the Buddhist religion. The visit is one of the most fascinating since to date the temple has not undergone restoration and is completely surrounded by the forest.
