Unexpected Village

January 24, 2015  •  1 Comment

Whilst in Sihanoukville we went exploring via Tuk Tuk and came across this Fishing Village. The village could be seen from the Resort but were unable to walk to it as there was a river in the way. 

Day 2-140806060315-425Day 2-140806060315-425 It was on a road that I would not have taken my Scooter down if I had one but our guide had no problem with getting us there.

It was well worth the bumpy ride though as getting to see how these friendly, welcoming people spend there lives was quite amazing.  Day 2-5Day 2-5 Day 2-6Day 2-6 These guys had just come back from a morning on the water. Unfortunately I didn't get to see what they caught.
Day 2-7Day 2-7 Day 2-8Day 2-8 Day 2-9Day 2-9 One thing that did surprise me was the amount of litter on the ground but they seemed content with it so I wasn't about to Judge. Day 2-12Day 2-12 Day 2-14Day 2-14 There was plenty of children there, all happy to see us. Day 2-13Day 2-13

We bought some treats at the village store which my wife gave out to the Kids. We got enough for all of them for just $1 US.

Despite the look of the place it was remarkable to see that they still had satellite tv. All the men were gathered around to watch it.  Day 2-10Day 2-10 Our Guide explained to us that it was a form of Boxing that they were watching. Day 2-20Day 2-20

This was an experience that I will never forget and really goes to show how much is out there if you just venture a bit further than the standard guided tours.

Till next time.
