Temples, Markets And Rain – My Trip Around Cambodia
Travelling and shooting for a month in humid climate during the rainy season was
a serious challenge. My aim was to traverse Phnom Penh, Mekong and Siem-Reap
before heading South to Kampot and Kep.
Shooting Siem-Reap was a case of choosing more exotic temple and trying to keep
away from the tourists. At Phom Penh I visited the main spots and few local
charms recommended by friends and locals. It was one the easiest city to shoot.
The Mekong was too flat and wide so it was a nightmare to get any real sense of
size. I’d pretty much crossed it off and left it for next time.
Kampot and Kep were full of rusted old colonial bridges, all kinds of wildlife,
mountains and beaches. It was an amazing place not overcrowded with tourists.
