First time fishing at Tonlé Sap in Siem Reap

I was really excited to go fishing for the first time in Cambodia, even though I suck at fishing and I was reminded of that when I tried to do it again with my friends. Thankfully, if you weren’t good at fishing, you can just nap in the hammocks and eat.

My Khmer (Cambodian) friends invited me and we spent the afternoon fishing, eating and lazing around by the Tonlé Sap, a combined river and lake system that is the largest body of water in South East Asia. It creates more than 75% of Cambodia’s fresh water fish cash and directly supports approximately more than three million people.

There are many tourist buses that pass along this route and the food is more expensive than the centre of town. But the resting on a hammock and sharing a meal with good friends for the afternoon is well worth it.
