"Well, My research from the..." Cambodia Favorite Tip by preben

Cambodia General: 239 reviews and 246 photos


Favorite thing: Well, My research from the internet was proven partly right: it one one hand gives the impression of a (poor) country now at ease with it's violent history, but also tells stories about muggings and kidnappings. My personal experience from moving to Senegal and living there for 2 years, tells me that more often than not - the horror stories are terribly exagerated. Same applied for Cambodia. Lots of tourists from back packers to 5-star hotel visitors
as well as a large expat community with Hash House Harriers (every sunday at train station 1445) and lots of other things going on, from football to water skiing ('the alligator ski-club' by the river.... No need to sleep with a gun under my pillow... it always has its risks....
Quiz; who is the guy in the middle I am hanging out with on a boat cruise on the Mekong river...?
