The Village of Kenh Ga (Chicken canal) gets its name, apparently, from the number of wild chickens that used to live here. That is the riverine way of life and the main draw. The local people seem to spend most of their lives on the water: watching over their floating fish-breeding pens, harvesting river grass for fish feed or selling veggies boat-to-boat. Even the children commute to school by boat. The river used for everything from bathing, to washing plucked chickens, Particularly, here people row boats with their feet.
