Tonle Sap River, 2/17/2020, The Jahan

  • Aboard the The Jahan
  • Vietnam & Cambodia aboard The Jahan

We started the day early onboard Jahan, with a pre-breakfast oxcart ride along the banks of the Tonle Sap River. We stopped to photograph lotus fields along the way before continuing to the village to visit two schools, the Green School and the Kampong Chhnang school, supported by the Lindblad-National Geographic Conservation Fund.

We returned to Jahan for breakfast, followed by a fashion show by the crew, featuring traditional Cambodian clothing. Our naturalist Erin gave a talk about the ecosystem of the Tonle Sap River. After lunch, we had a talk about iPhone photography with our onboard photo instructor.

We started the afternoon with a long boat ride followed by a short drive in a van to the village of Ondong Rossey, which produces palm sugar and traditional pottery. Afterward, we took local boats to explore floating villages inhabited by Vietnamese immigrants.
