Off the beaten track
Nicaragua is fast emerging as an exciting alternative to other Central American destinations. It offers plenty of scope for wildlife enthusiasts, adventure seekers and culture fans alike, all under the warm Nicaraguan sun. There’s no shortage of things to do in Nicaragua although its growing popularity in recent years has made some sites quite crowded. With that in mind, you might want to pepper your itinerary with some of the lesser known corners of this fascinating country. There is still plenty of Nicaragua which is steeped in authenticity, untouched by development.

Off the beaten track
Cambodia's Tonlé Sap is both a lake and a river system with an unusual feature - its flow reverses twice a year. In the dry season (November to May), the river drains into the Mekong at Phnom Penh. In the wet, silt in the Mekong delta causes the river to back up and flood a huge area of Cambodia, forming the Tonlé Sap lake. People living near the lake thus have to cope with water levels that go from nothing to nine metres. They do so by building their homes on stilts. In the dry season, walking around one of these villages you'll see homes built high above the ground, with people clambering up and down huge ladders. In the wet season these same homes seem to float on the lake, with people zipping around by boat.
