Floating Lives

The floating season (Sept to Nov), also known as the Mekong flood season, is a natural flood phenomenon typical of the Mekong Delta in Vietnam, the lower Mekong, Tonle Sap and Cambodia. During this time, a lot of fish come from upstream so instead of farming, locals switch to harvesting the abundant aquatic resources.
