The ‘Best of Cambodia’ photo gallery below is a collection of images I took in April/May 2013 while traveling in Cambodia. In two weeks of travel, I visited cheap Siem Reap and went cycling around Angkor, frolicked along the waterfront and checked out the prison in Phnom Penh, got hassled and watched firecrackers at Serendipity Beach in Sihanoukville, and chilled out on the most beautiful island in Southeast Asia (in my “professional” opinion) – Koh Rong.

I normally write about all of the awesome things I’ve seen and done while traveling and try to convince YOU to do the same someday.

I LOVE Asia. One of the best things about it is how starkly different it is to the western world in certain regards. While many of these culture clashes invigorated me, other Asian habits annoyed me – and some just had no logic to them.
