You’re traveling through Cambodia. Slowly your memory card wills with beautiful pictures. Imagine if you could get your picture on a eco postcard and you can support the local community. In this blog you read about personalized STAMP postcards made of eco-paper.
When you’re traveling in Cambodia in November, there is a chance you will experience the water festival. It is to celebrate the end of the rainy season and the water is flowing up north from the Tonlé Sap lake. Discover what the water festival (Bon Om Thook in Khmer) is and where you can join the festivities.
The way you dress in Cambodia is very important in their culture. It’s different from what you are used to. You don’t want to unintentionally offend the locals and that’s why it’s good to read up into the cultural differences. This is not your home country and sometimes you just need to adapt. This way you show respect and will avoid difficult situations.
Kampong Khleang is a village in Cambodia, situated at Tonle Sap lake. The majority of the community lives in stilts houses. This creates a unique feeling. Kampong Khleang is a must visit during your Cambodia trip. But.. what’s the best period to visit Kampong Khleang?
Climate influence on Tonle Sap
To choose the best period to visit, it’s good to understand a bit more about the climate in Cambodia. The climate has a big impact on the Tonle Sap lake. Cambodia has a dry and wet period. During the dry period (December – April), the water flows through the Tonle Sap river back into the Mekong river. This is visible in the Capital, Phnom Penh. From May onwards, the wet period starts. The water level in the Mekong rises and the water flows back to Tonle Sap lake. During the wet season, Tonle Sap becomes the biggest freshwater lake in southeast Asia.
We are back! It’s been a while since we last gave you some news. But we’ve been preparing something nice, something huge! We started our we care blog in order to support initiatives taken by NGO or volunteers to help Cambodian people.
Today, we are talking about our initiative. We’ve been taking you to Kompong Khleang for over two years now, a floating village we fell in love with for its authenticity and its beauty. And we keep going as as it is by far the best floating village to share and exchange with locals.
