We are planning to visit Cambodia and Southern Vietnam in the first half of February. I read in Lonely Planet guidebooks and the Internet that there are various floating villages and markets on Tonle Sap lake in Cambodia and in the Mekong delta in Vietnam. What is the difference between these communities? Is visiting all (most) of them worthwhile?
Also, we will be travelling with small kids (6, 4 and 1 years). Are the tours of these floating villages/markets reasonably child friendly?
Is it possible to combine visiting floating villages/markets with a boat transfer from Siem Reap to either Phnom Penh or Battambang? And does this trip make sense in February?
