My parents were born in the floating village(Prek Toal). My father and my mother got married during the Polpot genocide.

There are 8 people in my family and I have five sisters. My two older sisters died during the Polpot genocide, so now I have only one older sister and two young sisters. My family is not rich and we have only fishing to support our life.

My village(Prek Toal) is a floating village. We have a dry season and a wet season for 6 months each. During dry season, the villagers fish around the side of the Tonle Sap lake. In the middle the water is low - some places is 1 m, 2m and 3m deep. Some of them grow vegetables for eating and for sale. In the wet season, the water is very high and the villagers go fishing inside the forests, rivers, lakes...not in the middle of the Tonle Sap lake.

When I was 6 years old, I helping my father to fish every day from 2pm till 6am the next morning then at 7am I went to school. After school, I and my father went fishing on the Tonle Sap lake. It was far way from the village and we used the pedal boat. We went to places to go fishing and we would stay there for two or three days and then go back home.

When I was 10 years old, I went fishing alone and with a group. We would stay only one night (we left in the evening and came back in the morning). We caught the fish with a net that we left in a line in the water and gather it in the morning. In the early morning I started to take our net from the water into our boat. I would bring the fish to our home. When we got the big rains and strong winds with big wave, we did not sleep and stayed on the boat without sleep till the rain and wind finished, because we worried about our net, and especially our small pedal boat. It could not stand the big waves so we needed to find a big tree for parking to protect the boat and us. My older sister went to a business man who bought the fish. Then other people cut the fish to make fish paste(cheese).

After I finished my school in my village, I went to study in the Battambang city to finished grade 12. During my study in the city(not in the main city) I don't have money to rent the room for staying, so I stay in the Pagoda. I try to find a job in the city to earn money to support my study in High school. For my work in a small restaurant I earned US$15/per month for an 8 hour day, no day off. My parents could not support me, so I must earn money by myself and my two sisters. When I finished my school in the city in 2002, I came back to my village to help my parents doing fishing again. I stopped study for 5 years because I didn't have money to continue my study in University.

I lived my whole life on the water and I always think if I have another job I can help my parent to live in more happiness. You know in my village, the villagers’ only career is fishing.

This made me want to leave home to find a good job in Siem Reap to earn money to help my two young sisters who are still studying. I left my village in 2009 to go to Siem Reap to find a job. After 15 days that I was in the city, I got a job working as a waiter in a small restaurant near the old market. I earned US$40 per month. I pay rent of US$25 per month and give some money to my sisters to pay school fees. With tips of one or two dollars per day I paid for food (some days I did not get tips). I worked in the restaurant for one year and then I got my job at the Hotel industry. I work as the Receptionist. I earn US$75 per month. I pay for my new room for US$40 per month and plus for shower water 3USD/month, Electricity 0.25USD/Kilo watt, dust 0.50USD/month... and some for my sister to finish her study for grade 12 (2012); and she went to study in University(currently in year 3)with me(currently year 4 and will graduate in June 2015).

We are happy to study and happy to improve our knowledge to develop my village and the villagers who are not enough the money to support their life by provide them the extra skill as like: growing the vegetables(floating garden or on the land during the dry season), chickens, ducks etc.

In helping our village, I created two things;

1/ In 01 April 2012, I build up Prek Toal Tours & Travel to helping our family and also to our floating villagers. This tour is non-profit because we created new destinations and experiences for our guests to help our floating villages, by providing jobs and sharing the benefits of our growth.

As a family business we want to share our family, our community and our country with you at a personal level. To really understand how Cambodian people live and understand the challenges and joys they experience we believe the only way is for you to come in and be welcomed into our family, our community.

We are a small, boutique travel and tour company. As such we can best meet your individual needs and wishes. We know that you will fall in love with our community and knowing that every time you visit us, you are helping the community to be sustained for the future.

2/ In 25th Nov 2013, I have run as a host for Prek Toal Home Stay, there is the traditional houses of floating village in Prek Toal. Prek Toal Home Stay offers you an opportunity to share accommodation with the villagers in the unique floating Prek Toal Village and houses.

You can enjoy comfortable but not luxurious living and sleeping conditions, the on-site restaurant with local foods and sharing the experience with the local villagers. There are seating area to relax in after a busy day. We offer you family service to make your stay pleasant and rewarding.
Each of Prek Toal Home Stay has up to five mattresses with shared bathroom and House.

It is 25 km away from Siem Reap - Angkor International Airport and 80 km away from Battambang city. It’s takes around 1 hour drive from Siem Reap boat station and 6 hours’ drive from Battambang boat station by engine boat.


I wish to see my villagers and my family are get away from the poor life and they can send their son or daughter to school and get the higher class that possible to get the better job or can develop our community better.

Hope you can taking your holiday to our village to help them together...
