Travel Report: 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 us at Apsara Greenland Boutique Hotel. […]

Travel Report: Prasat Chrap Temple, Koh Ker, Cambodia.

June 2020. It was mid afternoon by the time we rolled up at Prasat Chrap Temple.

Travel Report: Prasat Thom Temple, Koh Ker, Cambodia.

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 […]

Travel Report: Coconut Beach – Koh Rong, Cambodia.

December 2015. What a tough afternoon’s hiking it had been over from neighbouring Nature Beach in roasting afternoon temperatures! But finally the dense jungle trail brought us out into an opening to the entrance path that leads down to Coconut Beach. My initial thought upon entering the beach was that Wonderboy and I had missed […]
