On a holiday jaunt to the Kingdom of Cambodia, I have found myself the most humbling experience day in and out. I have seen how blessed the country is, with its natural wonders, its rich cultural heritage and one of the best inter-country buses, plying out to Thailand, Vietnam and Laos, it is, I should say my best destination for cheap all inclusive holidays. It is in the Angkor Wat that I saw my humanity with the deepest meaning. I found that Angkor has more temples which nourish my thirsts for culture, heritage and the great lifestyle of the Khmer people. I also saw the most perfect sunrise in Angkor Wat, one which I will forever be seeing through in my lifetime.
I have seen Cambodia from its capital City Phnom Penh to its cultural juggernaut in Siem Reap, I learn to embrace the Khmer culture the most. I have made my first ever Christmas reflections at the most poignant of all places, in the Killing Fields in Choeung-ek where millions lost their lives. I have seen nothing beats the human spirit to break free and tell to the world how one, because of power, greed, illusion and sheer demonic perversion can maim forever, the generations of Cambodians yet the world just stood idly by. I have reflected so much on what I have missed in my lifetime and those were during my tender years since I was born in 1976. I stood at the worse prison cell in South East Asia, incomparable perhaps to any torture chambers in the world in its barbarism, yet I find hope.
What made Cambodia stand out as my favourite cheap all inclusive holiday destination in its currency. A visitor to the Kingdom need not worry about money exchange since the mighty US dollar even rules in Cambodia. From the most mundane to the expensive boutiques, they accept your dollar. Thinking where to go to in the future, heads up to where your money has the most value, Cambodia!
