Khmer woman, Kompong Phluk Village, Tonle Sap River, Cambodia. The village is built on the banks of the Tonle Sap River. Homes consist of wood and metal corrugated structures with thatching made of dry grasses raised on stilt poles.
The Tonle Sap River and Tonle Sap Lake, the largest freshwater body of water in Southeast Asia, are home to a diversity of cultures and wildlife. These boats provide transportation for both villagers and visitors to the Khmer stilt-pole villages at Kampong Phluk. Tonle Sap was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1997. It is one of the largest concentrations of fisheries in the world and about 90 percent of the population in the area of the lake and river make a living fishing. Homes are built on poles or floating pontoons as the river rises dramatically in monsoon season.
