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.
