M’Pay Bay Village

M’Pay Bay (or M’Pei Bei) means 23 in Khmer. The village consists of one street with a sandy road. Life is slow, simple, relaxed. Men go fishing and do construction work. Women cook, wash cloth, clean houses and care for children. Both also work for tourists (boat tours, homestays, restaurants). Children play, laugh, cry and grow.
