Across the turbid waters of the Mekong River, in eastern Cambodia, runs a long rickety bamboo bridge connecting the river island of Koh Pen, that sits in the middle of Mekong, to the river’s western banks where lies Cambodia’s sixth largest city—Kampong Cham.

This bamboo bridge is seasonal: it’s built every dry season when the waters of the Mekong River recede and become too shallow for ferry. Then at the start of each rainy season, before the rivers swell, the bridge is dismantled by hand and the bamboos stored away or reused for other constructions. This is done because during the wet season the river currents become too strong for the bridge to survive. Boats then ferry people across the river instead.
