Travel Report: Ta Prohm Temple, Cambodia.

November 2015. One of the many things I liked about my day touring Angkor’s amazing temples is that each structure we visited had a clear identity that set it apart from the others. As one of the so-called modern wonders of the world, Angkor Wat was an experience of pure grandeur and scale. Furthermore, the […]

One of Angkor’s most fascinating structures is Bayon Temple, known locally as The Temple of Faces.

Travel Report: Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum – Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

We’d strolled across tiny Kep Beach, admired the old flaky colonial villas and walked for hours down its neglected promenade. Along the way we exchanged greetings with sittin’ doin’ nothin locals and saw the dusty old amusement park […]

Travel Report: Cruising The Kampot River, Cambodia.

December 2015. A sunset cruise down the magical Praek Tuek Chhu River is quite possibly the most popular thing to do in the Cambodian city of Kampot. The river’s name doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue for us foreigners. As a result, you’ll find most people refer to it simply as The Kampot River. Whatever you call it, […]

Travel Report: Bokor National Park Part II, Cambodia.

Want to get the full picture? Before reading this why not start with my article: Bokor National Park Part I December 2015. As a former French hill station back in the colonial days of the 1920s, a visit to Cambodia’s Bokor National Park is all about sweeping views and abandoned buildings. This Catholic Church was […]

Travel Report: Otres Beach 2 – Sihanoukville, Cambodia.

December 2015. The Cambodian coastal city of Sihanoukville is home to a discreet beach scene that offers several fine stretches of golden sand. The best of these are the Otres beaches 1 & 2, both of which run down a lovely strip of coastline hugging the Gulf of Thailand. My travel buddy Wonderboy and I […]
