    When I watch that clip I think of how clean the river would of been and the amount of fish life within it compared to today.

    It looks like a lot more people lived on the water in 1962.

    So refreshing not to see plastic crap... but, I think these are shots taken at Tonle Sap. The Khong never gets that wide...

    Great old film
    up until late 2009 there were plenty of people living on the Tonle sap across from street 136, but then they stopped the ferry and moved everyone out.
    if u travel by boat up to SR u will see lots of communities along the river.
    In fact at 2.20 or so u can see them building the houses that are still standing today out in the lake outside SR.

    There was a great little bar on that side of the river too, called Snowys. Pulled that down too.

    Actually called Maxines
    He closed in 2011 and Ian ( Snowy) moved back to Oz to raise his kid. only the building was moved.
    I lived on that side of the Tonle Sap in 2008 an it was a great hang out an place to watch the sunset and listen to his bells and stories
