Ie Seam (left), 35, and Em Tak, 18, construct a wooden river boat, known in Khmer as a bala, at a floating village on the Tonle Sap lake in Siem Reap province last week. A made-to-order bala, which can carry up to 2 tonnes of cargo, costs US$5,500 (not including engine) and takes 15 days to complete.
