Cambodia [part four]

This is the fourth post in a series. The first post can be found here, the second here, and the third here.

After visiting Angkor Thom, we drove out to Tonle Sap Lake and boarded a wooden boat to head to the floating village. About two minutes after we had been cruising on the water, we heard a little voice behind us asking if we wanted to buy a soda or beer. I was not expecting this little voice and nearly jumped out of my seat. I had no idea where he came from. I started looking around and noticed a boat trailing behind us. The little boy jumped from his boat that his mother was steering, onto our boat. We bought a few beverages from him and then he jumped off our boat and back onto his boat and they cruised away.

After visiting Tonle Sap Lake, we went to lunch at Orchidee Angkor. If you visit Siem Reap and looking for a restaurant, go to this one and get the coconut curry. I didn’t get it, but Matthew did. He made the wisest choice. It was really good.

After lunch we headed over to  Artisans Angkor workshop where we were able to see craftsmen creating silk paintings, silver boxes, and wood and stone carvings. Some of the artisans are also working to restore some of the Angkor temples. Artisans Angkor has a school to train the craftsmen and also employs people with disabilities – deaf, mute, wheelchair bound. They now have opportunities they wouldn’t have had otherwise. If you are looking for something to do in Siem Reap after visiting several temples, I definitely recommend checking out the Artistans Angkor workshop.
