Cycling in Cambodia

The Idea Two days earlier, I had arrived in Siem Reap with little more than an idea: to go cycle touring in northern Cambodia. With no information available online, I set off with little idea what to expect and nothing but a small rucksack filled with a single change of clothes, a few spare bike parts and enough food and water for a couple of hours. It wasn’t long before I left the busy tourist centre with its many souvenirs and...

Battambang, Bamboo Rail-Riding in Cambodia

Battambang Bamboo Rail-Riding in Cambodia A Trip to Battambang ‘What would my insurance company say’, I wondered, ‘if I tried to make a claim for getting thrown off this thing?’ Especially since I had discovered my mode of transport, the Battambang, Cambodia, bamboo train, was actually ‘unofficial’ — or, illegal but in a legal kind of way. I had been excited about my trip to Battambang (pronounced ‘bat-tam-bong’), a city about three...

Phnom Penh’s Past and Present

  The Tragic Past And Positive Outlook All In A Day In Phnom Penh   There was a group of people doing the Gangnam Style on the boardwalk, with arms wildly swerving and legs kicking to the full Psy effect. Their leader, a young fitness enthusiast with a microphone hooked to his ear, shouted out the instructions and with him the rest of the group turned left and right, moved back and stepped forward in such uniformed precision...

Update: Compassion in Cambodia

Water Deprived Villages in Cambodia A few years Christine and I traveled through Southeast Asia and met a very compassionate man, Nu Tarth. On our return we posted a story on In The Know Traveler about how he survived the genocide of the 70’s “Killing Fields” to start the Angkor Charity Organization, a non-profit devoted to providing clean water and schools. We were so inspired by his work that along with friends, family, and...

Kep the Crabs Coming

A visit to the seaside town of Kep I visited the crab market in Kep with the intention of ‘just looking’ before grabbing a couple of baguettes for a late breakfast. Following the steps of the locals I found myself surrounded by bamboo baskets hoisted out of the sea by ladies in gum boots and thick gloves, bargaining for my breakfast. Crabs for breakfast may seem a bit odd, but by the size of the crowd gathered here on the...

Beyond Angkor Wat: the stilt village of Kampong Khleang

“Want tuk tuk? We go to Angkor Wat!” touts a few enthusiastic tuk tuk drivers as we strolled out of our hotel. It is assumed here that Angkor Wat is the sole purpose of all tourists who come to Siem Reap, after all, the town has been receiving foreign visitors for 120 years, acting as a gateway to the Angkor temples. We had different ideas however, and stayed in Siem Reap a little longer to get a sense of what else there...
