After some of the more extreme examples of modern transport one comes across on Cambodian roads in our previous post here’s a selection of photos of more traditional Cambodian transport, Just emphasizes what we said in the previous post – there’s always something interesting to see when on a Cambodian road trip! (Note, they were all still very commonly seen when we originally wrote this post in 2011 although 10 years later are an increasingly rare sight.)
The above photo was taken somewhere in Kompong Cham Province while the below image was right in front of the southern entrance to the magnificent Beng Melea Temple near Siem Reap.
Country back lanes are a good spot to see these traditional forms of Cambodian transport.
Note the design of this Angkor period ox cart, seen below on a lintel at Tonle Bati, which remarkably hasn’t changed at all in over 1,000 years.
For that matter, many of the roads in current use are the same ones – with or without upgrades – as were constructed during the Angkor period. (See our recent Angkor roads post here.)
