A small family, Saron, Somnat and their daughter Lyn, live just a few hundred meters from Cambodia’s greatest attraction, Angkor Wat. Originally from Kampong Cham, they have lived on the small plot of land near the world famous temples for 3 years, where they have a small duck farm and sell palm juice, which Saron personally harvests by climbing the tall palm trees.

60 year old Khon has lived in the same small village near Siem Reap her whole life. Everyday she works in her fields growing vegetables, saying it keeps her strong and healthy. She has two children and seven grandchildren.
