My 5: Hiking from Nature Beach to Coconut Beach – Koh Rong, Cambodia.

Hike from Nature Beach to Coconut Beach Koh Rong Cambodia

1. December 2015. After a day lazing about on Koh Rong’s sleepy Nature Beach, Wonderboy and I decided to hike over to the island’s neighboring Coconut Beach which, we were told, is one of the island’s most impressive stretches of sand and home to a stunning bay of aquamarine water. 2.

My 5: Nature Beach – Koh Rong, Cambodia.

Nature Beach Koh Rong Cambodia

1. December 2015. I think Wonderboy and I knew we’d made the right decision as soon as we stepped off our boat onto Koh Rong’s Nature Beach. Clear water… a modest but largely empty stretch of sand… a visible range of clientele that could be counted on one hand… this was exactly what we’d been […]

1. December 2015. It was December the 11th when Wonderboy and I arrived in the Cambodian town of Sihanoukville for a few days of premeditated beach lazing and overeating.

My 5: The Killing Fields – Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Mass grave 450 victims Choeung Ek Killing Fields Phnom Penh Cambodia

1. December 2015. After a couple of hours wandering around the unwaveringly grim Tuol Sleng Genocide Centre, the last thing I felt like doing was going out to The Killing Fields, the place where so many Cambodian prisoners were finally put out of their misery in the mid 1970s. But in many ways seeing Choeung […]

My 5: Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum – Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

1. December 2015. It wasn’t all fun and games during my stay in Phnom Penh. Somewhere along the way my travel mate and I knew we had to stop by this former torture centre to learn more about Cambodia’s dark history. The atrocities carried out here by The Khmer Rouge in the 1970s were unspeakable, […]
