Cambodia in photos

Cambodia is a wonderful country! Full of history – a cruel one, but it hasn’t stopped the locals from getting really friendly. Cambodia is probably what Thailand was like 20 years ago. Here you will find small villages, big cities without skyscrapers, a lush jungle, beautiful beaches and of course Angkor Wat! Seriously, you will find Angkor Wat on everything: the visa for Cambodia, beers, the Cambodian flag, pictures – seriously everywhere! There aren’t as many tourists as in Thailand, so you might end up having the beach for yourself! It is wonderful and a country everyone should visit! See some of my photos from this amazing country! And I can’t wait to revisit this country, hopefully later this year

All of the temples of the Angkor complex are beautiful and magnificent in their own way! But go as soon as possible because they are slowly broken down

A visit to S-21, a prison during Pol Pot’s regime in Cambodia – a horrifying experience. Read more about it here

Boys playing football in the streets of Phnom Pehn. I quickly took my camera in after a man showed a bit too much interest in my camera and the value of it…

Otres Beach outside of Sihanoukville is quiet and beautiful. I travelled the country outside of the season, so we were probably 10 people sharing the beach 🙂

Siden jeg var barn har jeg drømt om at tage ud og rejse. I år 2011 tog jeg for første gang afsted på en længere rejse. Det endte med at blive seks måneders solorejse og siden har jeg blot forsat med at rejse. Jeg elsker kultur, at se steder som jeg ikke har set før og mødet med de lokale. Jeg rejser sjældent med en guidebog eller kort, da jeg er ret god til at finde vej og elsker at gå på opdagelse. Til gengæld er også jeg utrolig god til at miste mine ting og burde snart indberegne erstatning for mistede ting i mine budgetter....

Tak fordi du læser med!

  1. Hi Tine,
    Love these pictures! They bring back many memories so thanks for sharing. I visited these exact same places and discovered many photo opportunities which will be filtered into my blog over time.

    If you are interested in sourcing more income for your travels, then you may be interested in a website called fineartamerica.com
    Its a place where you can upload and sell prints online of you best pictures. I’m about to set-up an account myself and see how it goes.

    I remember that when I first arrived in Cambodia I was so overwhelmed by the amount of photography that I could do there. But I was suprised at how much the locals enjoy being photographed and the kids were great fun..so photogenic and full of life!

    If you would like to check out some of my videos from these places, many of them are of my time spent with locals and exploring Cambodia away from the tourist path. I have some on my youtube playlist ‘Cambodia’ and my channel is called ‘The Hunter Traveller’. In support of your article and alongside your pictures, I hope that some of my videos could inspire your subscribers to visit and really explore wonderful Cambodia. It’s certainly a country that should not be missed if you are planning a visit around South East Asia!!

    Happy travels!
    James

    1. Thanks James! I really appreciate it!
      I love photography and really like my photos, but it means a lot getting credited by others!!
      At the moment I am selling on istock, but I will take a look at it for sure, thanks 🙂
      That could be cool. I will take a look at them and they might get featured as a travel video 🙂
