Siem Reap


Cambodia, specifically Siem Reap, is one of the most magical places you’ll ever visit. From the majestic temple ruins to the warm and friendly people, this is a town that has been through a lot and keeps on moving forward. While Angkor Wat and the surrounding temples are the main reason for coming to Siem Reap, there is so much more to keep your eyes open to, from the daily life of the teenagers bicycling to school, trying to make it to college, to the blind and amputated landmine victims who now make music. The deep wounds of this country’s genocide from the late 1970s are still healing, but a national pride for what makes Cambodia great is the overarching cause for daily celebration in Siem Reap, a destination that has only recently begun to reap the rewards of international tourism.
