A selection of superb Cambodia photographs from Gary Latham taken on his recent Images of Indochina photographic tour of Vietnam and Cambodia. So, without further a-do…..all images by Gary and comments by All Points East. (Please note that for the purposes of speed and space the images’ resolution have been reduced so apologies for any loss of quality!) Unusual star-lit…

Kompong Chnang, Cambodia, a provincial capital lying on the bank of the Tonle Sap River some 2 hours north of Phnom Penh and without a doubt one of Cambodia’s most interesting and photogenic towns.

Prek Toal is located on the Sangkar River in Western Cambodia’s Battambang Province.         All photographa were…
