Floating market gardens

An extraordinary array of vegetables can be seen growing out on the lake on floating rafts of water hyacinth.
This is just so utterly clever, I wonder why I didn't see such things in the floating villages in Vietnam. I like how you have composed it with the house peeking through.

Yes, I wondered the same thing about VietNam and Cambodia too. My only guess is that maybe the height of Inle Lake is more or less constant between a small range, and that, eg, Tonle Sap isn't (fluctuates a lot). We saw lots of tomatoes, eggplant and other unknown crops all growing very happily.

Such a clever way of growing vegetables. Lovely composition.

@bintal @hermann @robz I was very interested to have a good look at these floating market gardens, but that was easier said than done unfortunately.
