Named after beloved king of Cambodia, King Sihanouk, Sihanoukville has become a beach destination, but be warned, the garbage and amount of humanity is actually mind boggling. While a beautiful destination, be on your guard about child sex tourism.
One thought on “Photo a day – March 19, 2012, The Beaches of Sihanoukville, Cambodia”
I find it particularly sad that people from developed countries are traveling to an impoverished country like Cambodia to prey on children. Cambodians generally look up to foreigners, particularly Westerners, as role models for fairness, benevolence, freedom and justice. The acts of the sex tourists are threatening to undermine the good deeds of those foreigners who are in Cambodia to do good.
