In the short two weeks we allotted to traverse Cambodia, we only got a brief but impressive taste of the Pearl of Asia. We saw thousand-year-old towering temple ruins dotted with saffron robes of friendly Buddhist monks. We observed death-defying tuk-tuk drivers zip around golden shrines. We were mesmerized by gilded dancers smiling mystically as they delicately curved their hands just like the carved temple stones. We chugged up tiny rivers in slow boats and bumped across the country in dusty mini-buses. Here is a selection of photos from our stay in the Khmer Kingdom.
