Dry, dusty, ancient, incredible.
It was the height of the dry season so it was hot and dusty. The country is low and flat with the first real mountains I saw being in Ratanakiri near the Cambodia Laos border. Following the monsoon rains the country side must look amazing not mention keep the dust down to a minimum. I didn’t spend a lot of time in Cambodia as the timing for the beginning of my trip in 2011 was quite tight. I only twelve days but in that time I saw the temples of Angkor, the beaches of Sihanoukville, a glimpse of the Mekong riverside town of Kampong Cham and the remote North West town of Ban Lung.
During my time here I was fortunate enough to meet some great people who definitely made my trip in Cambodia all the more memorable.
