Cambodia’s Lovely People

Never touch a monk in Cambodia, especially if you’re a woman and you want to photograph him because he’ll leave, and you waste a good opportunity.

Angkor Wat, where sunrise isΒ warmly beautiful, and Ta Phrom, where Lara Croft: Tomb Raider was shot, are not the only things to love about Cambodia. More than the them, I also love the Cambodians or the Khmer people.

Here’s a set of photos capturing the daily lives of the Cambodian people, who are said “to strongly identify their identity with their religious beliefs and practices, which combine the tenets of Theravada Buddhism with elements of indigenous ancestor-spirit worship, animism and shamanism.”

Perhaps the reason why they have almost 4,000 temples; 2,000 discovered, and maybe over a hundred opened to tourists so they too, can appreciate the culture of the ancient Khmers.
