Cambodia is one of the poorest countries today. They carry painful memories of the radical communist Khmer Rouge‘s time in power under the leadership of Pol Pot between 1975 and 1978. Two million people died in the regime’s brutal pursuit of a rural utopia. This is still very evident in their culture, you can still get a sense of loss from their people.
Their focus now is to build on tourism and the garment trade.
I wrote up a diary of our wonderful visit to Cambodia which I hope to post here some day soon
It was a pleasure to visit Cambodia and their beautiful people.
