This third world country will not only give you a full dose of culture shock, but will leave you feeling enlightened and awakened to the struggles of other civilizations. 

It was originally a location I wasn't sure if I wanted to explore based on how "dumpy" it looked, however to this day is definitely one of my favorite experiences and top contenders for where you can really get a good wake up call to the differences in lifestyles and what many people tend to take for granted. 

For a true cultural experience, you may choose to purchase seafood that is prepared right off the shore, browse one of the many markets, or perhaps take a journey to the largest and most populous city (and capital) of Phnom Penh.

It is truly a place that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime. 

What better time than now?


For anyone interested in immersing themselves in culture or "people watching," the markets offer a great opportunity to get a first-hand look into everyday life as well as many amazing photo ops! 

I definitely gained a new appreciation for people and capturing them in their element during these excursions!
