People in Cambodia
A glimpse of life and people in Cambodia.
Southeast Asia is known for having warm and friendly people, but we find that Cambodians are especially lovely. I am constantly humbled by the generosity of strangers and the willingness of people to show kindness immediately, something that as westerners we aren’t often used to. (Stranger danger!) From tuk tuk drivers to street side vendors, construction workers to business people, if you make the effort to smile at someone you are just about guaranteed a smile in return. As you walk down the road, grins and shouts of “Hello!” from little kids light your path. And whether they are curious or just friendly, those smiles often make my day.

Things to do in Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Here are our top tips for things to do in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
Phnom Penh often isn’t given the time it deserves on many travelers’ itineraries. Many people spend only a day or two in Cambodia’s capital while others may choose to skip it entirely.
We’ll admit that Phnom Penh can seem pretty rough around the edges, especially if you just have a short time to spend there and are just going to the main tourist spots.
After living in Phnom Penh for over three years, Stevo and I found endless things to and see in the city and surrounding areas.
If you have the time we recommend spending at least three to five days exploring Cambodia’s vibrant, historic and rapidly developing capital city. [Read more…]

Why travel in Cambodia?
Cambodia has something to offer every traveler: stunning beaches and secluded islands, the magnificent and historic temples of Angkor, the developing, bustling and rapidly changing capital of Phnom Penh, the hard hitting realities of recent history at the Cheung Ek Killing Fields and Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, little explored jungles, wildlife, expansive countryside, and opportunities to work and volunteer. Cambodians are some of the friendliest people in the world, the food is underrated and delicious, and the scenery is gorgeous. No matter what you seek, you can find it in Cambodia.
