Siem Reap, Cambodia : Floating Village Scam

So, I paid USD27 for a trip to Floating Village in Siem Reap inclusive of pick-up (return) from/to my hostel. When the trip finished, I feel like punching people in their faces because … it was a tourist ripoff. There were nothing much to see except for people living in poverty (and I am not making fun out of it) and some interesting “architecture” of floating houses.
Anyway, (but) I am pretty lucky compare to other travelers/tourists as I heard some of them being cheated by the scammers to buy food, milk, school stuffs for the “unfortunate poor people” there but ended up they re-sell it back for cash. Assholes!
