Photo a Day – January 26, 2012, Life in Cambodia


When I traveled to Cambodia with my family, it was one of the most incredible places I have ever seen. The nation has seen brutal genocide within the last 30 years and still suffers from child sex tourism and land mines placed during the Vietnam War.

With that being said, the people are some of the friendliest, most hospitable I have met on my travels. As well, the temple complexes spread out over the entire country are magnificent and will be featured in my upcoming series on Cambodia.

  1. I was there in 2001, seems like a lifetime ago. I am sure village life has not changed but I hear places like Siem Reap have become much more like Thailand now with many hotels, restaurants, bars and tourist oriented activities….good for the economy, but a shame it had to change.

    1. Yeah, I was there in 2007 and you could just see Siem Reap starting to change. They say Cambodia is a place you have to see now before it’s completely changed. Great to see you keeping on commenting on my posts. I’ll check out yours when I’ve got a chance.

  2. Poverty and the lack of law enforcement both contribute the prevalence of sex tourism in Cambodia. I would like to applaud international aid organizations like World Vision for helping to combat sex slavery in the country.
