Floating Village of Kompong Phluk

Seeing the temples in Siem Reap is a must, there's no denying that. It's just what you do when you visit.  My first day and a half were spent exploring the big hitters in the Angkor area. Phnom Bakheng, Phimeanakas, Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm,Bayon and Baphuon. They were as expected, mesmerizing. There's just something spectacular about walking those ancient temples. It's almost surreal. 
Although the experience is one you shouldn't miss, it wasn't exactly the most fun. The humidity during my stay was brutal during the day. Walking from temple to temple had me sweating and longing for even a whisper of a breeze. I sought refuge inside the temples when I could but for most of my sojourn I was at the mercy of the open sky. 
So yeah, day two was not going to be a repeat.  I looked into alternative activities to do in Siem Reap and discovered that I could take a boat ride to a floating village. Surely being on the water would be way better than trudging around in the heat.
