Going wild at the Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center [new blog post]

If there’s anything I’ve learned about Southeast Asian zoos, it’s that you can get ridiculously close to the animals compared to anywhere else in the world with all those pesky “rules” and “precautions.”. That’s never been more true than at the Phnom…

Even when trying to avoid riding elephants, things are not so cut and dry. More and more people are wizening up to the fact that riding elephants is not a good thing, so tour companies are offering trips that involve feeding, cleaning and watching…

The Harbin Ice Festival attracts millions of people each year, and Coca-Cola is there to provide bizarre hot versions of its soft drink.

[New blog post] 5 Reasons to Bicycle in Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh’s streets are clogged and chaotic. If it isn’t traffic that’s blocking the way, it’s an impromptu flood during the rainy season. The roads can be dangerous, with everyone on a motorbike or driving an SUV seemingly on their phones and oblivious…

Review: Diving in Cambodia with Scuba Nation

Dive shops are a dime a dozen these days in coastal Sihanoukville, Cambodia (of course, the actual price is a lot more than that). The quality – and prices – seems to vary greatly depending on whom you go with, and a number of these companies specialize…

Height of stupidity: Phnom Penh's 'illegal' hotel opens soon

Work is almost finished on a four-star hotel near the Royal Palace deemed so offensive – and so illegal – that Phnom Penh authorities demanded it be torn down. The order, given almost a year ago in October 2013, has unsurprisingly gone ignored. Now, the…

The Last of Southeast Asia's Irrawaddy Dolphins

The rare Irrawaddy dolphin's numbers are dwindling to critical levels in the Mekong River. You can still see them up close in Kratie, Cambodia by boat.

I had a  damn fine cup of coffee in northern Cambodia. 
When it comes to coffee, Cambodia will never be able to compete with the scale of neighboring Vietnam’s vast operations. While Vietnam is the second largest producer of coffee in the world, Cambodia has been carving out its own niche with some [...]

[New blog post] So I Caught Dengue Fever in Cambodia

Some 40,000 people suffer from dengue fever annually in Cambodia, and now I'm one of them. Top-notch treatment is available at the new Royal Phnom Penh Hospital, but you're going to need to pay top dollar for this level of care.

Good, bad and ugly at OneFC's debut in Cambodia

OneFC made its much-hyped debut in Phnom Penh with its Sept. 12 “Rise of the Kingdom” event. The Singapore-based MMA promotion is the largest in Asia and its arrival to Phnom Penh was meant to symbolize that Cambodia’s arrival on the international martial…

The sad state of the troubled zoo in Kampot

About ten kilomers up the western bank of the Kampot river from the town is a shabby zoo that looks like it's fallen on hard times once again. Despite being featuring a variety of A-list animals (lions, tigers, bears, elephants and much more) and a…
