Every year, when the floods come to Cambodia, the Great River runs backward. The town on the Great River floats, and spreads out over a vast lake. How do the people live without land? Explore a hidden city, a floating town, a city on ice, a city that is sinking, one with many forgotten tunnels, and a military base inside a mountain. Learn about these fascinating places.
