Lake Boys (Cambodia)

Some boat boys sailing on the Boeng Kak Lake - a popular backpacker area in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

 

Yes! These boys work and some may complain that it's child labour.

But these boys are considered lucky, as so many kids have no choice but to be beggars or worse.

They live on the "water" and some of them go to state schools. In the day they help with the harvesting of a vegetable called Morning Glory. In the evening and during sunset, they take locals and tourists out on the lake.
