On my trip to Siam Reap me and a friend stopped by a lake village. Only an hour away from Siam Reap ware beautiful open skys and colored sunsets surrounded you.
Ask any tuk tuk driver if they havent offered to take you there already.
Really worth the visit, buy some trinkets and eat some fresh fried fish, when you get to the village, the fish just doesn't get any fresher.
On your boat trip to the one of the main floating town clusters if your lucky you will get fallowed by boats wanting to offer you varies things amongst them kids selling trinkets soda pop. Me and my traveling friend were lucky to get boarded much like im sure pirates did in ages past.
Our boat driver never even lowered the throttle. The other boat maned by probably the father came along side and a very happy 10 year old kid embarked acting as cute as possible putting a can of soda pop in your face, how could you say no. 2 cans latter for me and my friend an a very handsome tip, and charged me a dollar for taking a picture of him, He felt like he hit bank with us, when you consider what a few dollars can buy for these people. The kid left waving and laughing his as off as his boat unhinged. Never felt so good about being suckered.
