    Siem Reap, Cambodia

    February 1 in Cambodia ⋅ 🌙 29 °C

    From the local market, to the floating villages all the way to our last lunch, Cambodia treated us so very well. If the struggling state of the economy isn’t enough of an indicator, then a few minutes at the landmine museum (or a visit to the genocide museum - which we did not take in) reminds us that Cambodia is a country pocked and bent by war and struggling to establish a foothold as a developing nation. Despite this, the people are happy and industrious and doing what they can to make a good life for themselves and the next generation. Everywhere we went, it was expressed over and over how important it is that tourists are coming to enjoy Cambodia. Our visit was too short, but we were tourists in every sense of the word (for better or for worse). Hopefully we can return another time to see more of the country.Read more
