Koh Chang, located in Eastern Thailand’s Trat Province,  is the countries 3rd largest island after Phuket and Samui but, though development has proceeded rapidly over the last decade, it remains still much more low key than either of its larger competitors. Resorts now succeed each other one after the other all the way down the West coast sandy beaches and…

We’ll round up our series on Western Cambodia’s Sangkar River with a selection of landscapes of the highly picturesque river. Do feel that photos, or at least our photos, don’t really do the scenery justice though. It’s not like trying to capture a beach, mountain or say sunset – these are such broad vistas and wide landscapes; marshes and waterscapes…

Following on from our bird-life  of the Sangkar River post here’s a selection of some of the human activity we’ve photographed on recent trips along this spectacular and picturesque river in western Cambodia:         ….whilst most of the remaining images seem to fall into the ‘small kids in charge of boats’ category which never ceases to amaze…

A few photos of some of the spectacular bird-life we’ve come across on recent boat trips down western Cambodia’s Sangkar River. (Would have a lot more for you but since it’s tricky getting sharp shots of fast moving birds from a heavily vibrating boat we had to delete most of them!?) The Sangkar River begins in the mountains to the…

Yes they are somewhat voyeuristic photos and the locals thought we were plain crazy but we actually like the bright colours and forms in these shots we took recently of washing drying on the floating houses of Prek Toal Village. Prek Toal is located on the Sangkar River in Western Cambodia’s Battambang Province.         All photographa were…

Since we’re off to Skuon tomorrow and 3 of my current group are from Kent we thought we’d re-post this Cambodia spider article again, (plus we haven’t really got time to write a new one anyway!) An English headmaster created something of a controversy recently when he ate a tarantula during school assembly in Orpington, Kent! See article… (They never did…

Another excellent and interesting Cambodian road trip yesterday – this time from Phnom Penh up to Siem Reap. First stop was Skuon for the always popular deep fried ‘tarantulas’. Popular photo subject that is – not always such a popular snack and this time the fried crickets won out over the spiders hands down. Problem with the over-sized arachnids is…

Must have visited the ruined Ta Nei Temple some 20 times and am yet to see another visitor there! Moreover it’s a great little Jayarvarman VII site in a picturesque forest setting with some interesting carvings remaining and it’s not really that inaccessible. There’s no road to this temple making it, along with Banteay Tom, one of the rare reasonably…
