People fall in love with Cambodia, and they keep returning and returning.  I know I do.

I’ve spent so much time in Siem Reap that I have travel tips I don’t see in any guide books. If you’re planning a trip and would like an hour of my Siem Reap advice, plus a doc with travel tips, please feel free to get in touch

Or, have a look at my Cambodia articles, and don’t forget the general Asia articles which contain lots of tips for Cambodia, including what to pack, how to walk and how to avoid scams, and how to travel respectfully in a Buddhist country.

Intro to Cambodia

Personalities and responsible tourism

  • Turning life around, a “4 questions with” profile on the most amazing monk you’ll ever meet, Hoeurn Somnieng, (for Singapore Airlines’ regional in-flight magazine, SilkWinds) and the backstory. Venerable Hoeurn Somnieng, founder of the Life and Hope Association and the Park Hyatt Siem Reap Sewing School, is one of the most fascinating people I’ve ever met during my travels, and I describe the experience in this interview by Lauren Crabbe, The Lemon Pie Life.
