My ‘holiday’ in Cambodia was one hell of a crazy month. For some reason, it was just full of freak moments, knife fights and dodgy accidents. This was also the time where I was going through a very difficult time getting an abortion.
Putting aside all this woe, I highly recommend you travel to Cambodia. It’s a truly fascinating country going through an incredibly interesting time – the Cambodians are learning who they really are and what they want after a horrific, terrible time with the Khmer Rouge genocide.
In order to begin to understand Cambodia, make sure you do visit the S21 prison and the Killing Fields in Phnom Penh. It’s harrowing stuff, but vital to beginning to understand what this country has been through.
