Travel Report: Prasat Pram Temple, Koh Ker.

Prasat Pram Temple, Koh Ker, Cambodia. June 2020. The final stop of our day exploring Koh Ker’s ancient ruins came at Prasat Pram Temple. By this point we were exhausted, hot and thoroughly drenched in our own sweat. Consequently, we felt more than ready to head home, where a cold shower and swimming pool awaited […]

Travel Report: The Black Lady Temple, Koh Ker.

The Black Lady Temple, Koh Ker, Cambodia. June 2020. It had been a long, fruitful morning exploring the isolated temple ruins of Koh Ker.

This was our eighth ancient structure of what had been a fantastic day exploring the isolated ruins of Koh Ker. Jumping out of the car, we made our way towards the entrance, where the sound of […]

Prasat Banteay Pir Chaon Temple, Koh Ker.

Prasat Banteay Pir Chaon Temple, Koh Ker. June 2020. Even within the isolated and less visited temple complex of Koh Ker, Prasat Banteay Pir Chaon Temple stands as a particularly ignored structure. In many ways, there is little to set it apart from the more standard temple ruins we’ve seen throughout Cambodia. Nevertheless, there were […]

Travel Report: Prasat Krachap Temple, Koh Ker.

Prasat Krachap Temple, Koh Ker, Cambodia. *With five more Koh Ker temples to go, I’ve decided to publish the remaining ruins over the next consecutive five days. These are the smaller and less visited of Koh Ker’s ancient structures, thus they are mini articles, if you will. Happy temple hunting!*  —— June 2020. After the dramatic […]

Travel Report: The Linga Temples, Koh Ker.

The Linga Temples, Koh Ker, Cambodia. June 2020. After the breathtaking majesty of Koh Ker’s pyramid temple at Prasat Thom, I imagine some people might be a bit disappointed by The Linga Temples. In fact, this collection of five single-chamber structures is entirely understated in comparison. Nevertheless, I was fascinated and charmed by the three […]

Travel Report: Prasat Thom Temple, Koh Ker.

Prasat Thom Temple, Koh Ker. June 2020. When I look back on the highlights of my Cambodia adventures, I know there’ll always be a special place for Koh Ker. While we’d had an amazing time exploring The Angkor Temples, there was something about Koh Ker that appealed to my more intrepid instincts. Scattered across an isolated jungle region of northern […]

The fascinating floating village of Kampong Phluk lies deep in the countryside of Siem Reap Province. The village is home to around three thousand people, most of whom are fishermen.

Bon Om Touk Water Festival, Cambodia.

Bon Om Touk Water Festival, Cambodia. November 2015. I’ve always enjoyed Siem Reap’s predominantly sleepy vibe. Even back during my first spell here I quickly learned to stay away from the frenetic Old Market and irksome Pub Street. Despite being the gateway to the world famous Angkor Temples, I never had trouble finding a lazy […]
