"What inspired me most was the resilience of the Cambodian people. They are a nation of survivors."

Joy Bryant

Cambodia is still recovering from Pol Pot’s leadership in the '80s, but the Khmer people are so lovely and smiley that you wouldn’t guess everyone walking around today is a survivor of mass-genocide. They country's bloody past is a testament to the people and their ability to pick up the pieces and start again. 

The country itself is rich with modern and ancient history  the beaches shine, 

 

 They’re polite, friendly, and full of hope – it's difficult to believe a quarter of the population was wiped out just decades before.
