Cambodia is my favourite country of all time in which I have lived and travelled extensively. Phnom Pehn has wears its heart on its sleeve and is a very humbling city. You should visit the relaxed town of Kampot and kayak down the river, and go for a hike in Kep’s national park. The image of the sunrise in between the spires of Angkor Wat will stay with me forever.
My first taste of Cambodia was around 10 years ago when I travelled across Asia to experience the mighty Angkor Wat. I hired a tuk tuk and driver and whizzed through the temples in the intense heat taking in the magnificent glory until being treated to a wonderful sunset behind the wat. Phnom Penh with its chequered history is just as interesting and although harrowing at times it is also inspiring how the country and people remain so positive and friendly. I was lucky enough to travel back to Cambodia last year, this time also taking in the Cardomon mountains and the stunning islands off the South coast, which rival Thailand’s beaches any day.
As part of her Cambodia trip Jo went to visit the local project we support, The Cambodia Dutch Foundation and taught an English lesson to the children.
