Experience a unique way of life and learn about fishing communities at Meychrey Floating Village. This floating village sits on the edge of a man-made canal, with the residents relying mostly on fishing and tourism to get by. As you explore the river by boat, you’ll get a glimpse of everyday life on the stilted houses, as well as seeing a school packed full of studying students. Bird-watchers will also revel in the chance to spot an abundance of bird life while floating along the river.
