Photographer's Note

a streetshot from Siem Reap (or Siem Reab)
from the back of a tuktuk


Siem Reap is the bustling touritst town near Angkor Wat. With tons of hotels, bars and restaurants it provides jobs for many Cambodians from the outlying provinces. There's also a very, very large contigent of expats living and working in Siem Reap.


Local transportation in Cambodia is often with tuktuks. In tourist places, all tuktuk drivers speak English and even in the more remote places, it's usually not difficult to find one that knows at least some basic English. In fact, usually they find you. (And yes, they are friendly and polite.)

For the more physically inclined, there are also plenty of bicycles for rent. They can be a great way to explore the vast ruins of Angkor Wat.

Cambodia needs wheels.
