Here is a video I took of the market in Pailin. You can see the bins of live fish for sale
I spent a couple of days in Krakor near a special village called Kompong Luong. Kompong Luong is a true "floating village". The town is completely floating on water and moves around the Tonle Sap lake according to the seasons. It's between 2000 and 3000 people with shops, schools, hospital, pagodas, and workshops with waterways dividing everything into neighbourhoods. You can tour around on a motorized canoe, and stay in one of the 2 guesthouses in the village.
During my tour, I ran into the "meat lady" selling her meats from door to door. She wouldn't stop laughing! To see more photos of Kompong Luong check out my photo blog
