Volunteer English Teacher

I had just graduated from university in Australia and I was interested in travelling and working abroad. I had spoken to a friend who had been a volunteer English teacher in Southeast Asia, and he was very upbeat about his extraordinary experiences. In fact, he had plans to return and continue teaching English in Southeast…

Cambodia Etiquette

Many visitors to Cambodia are often baffled by Khmer customs and Cambodian etiquette: Why do they always smile? Why are they always bowing? Why are they so loud? Well, they’re Khmer and that’s the way they go about things in Cambodia. Of course, there is a bit more to it than that. Cambodia Etiquette |…

Cambodia History | 1995

“No, not possible” was the reply followed by “Too dangerous.” Apparently, travelling by bus could end up being stopped by bandits, or worse the Khmer Rouge, and taken hostage then a ransom demanded, or else. It appeared my plan to visit Angkor Wat had run into a hurdle. Cambodian History | 1995   This was…

Kampot Cambodia

It is not hard to see why people become entranced with Kampot, Cambodia. It doesn’t have Siem Reap’s temples or the glitz of Sihanoukville; however, the town is charming, laid-back and perfect for relaxing and taking a breather from the dusty trails of Cambodia. Kampot Cambodia Kampot doesn’t look like much at first with its…

Ratanakiri

Ratanakiri is definitely one of the more “out there” destinations in Cambodia. The province’s name is derived from two Sanskrit words: Ratna which stands for gems and Giri which stands for mountains, items much in demand and the cause of much demise.

Living In Cambodia | Phnom Penh

Life in “The Penh” has the good, the bad and the ugly. A combination that makes life in Cambodia very interesting, but it can send some people into despair. There is great accommodation, but at a price; there is the traffic, but it can drive foreigners mad; and there is the food, a huge variety…
