A travelogue by Larry Quah whose maxim is that a good traveller takes nothing with him but fond memories and leaves nothing but his footprints.

A cluster of houses within the floating village. Typically, in a year, the village has to move a few times depending on the depth of the lake which is affected by both rain and the tidal flows of the Mekong River. As the rainy season comes in Jun, the village moves closer to shore and at the end of the year, when the rainfall is the highest, they move again further virtually to the lakeside. When the rain subsides, they move out again. Sounds nomadic.
