Riding From Saigon to Angkor

Cambodia’s roads are hot, flat and straight as a rail, but for all that, cycling on them is an exhilarating multi-dimensional experience

Just for a moment, the piglets stopped their squealing. Wouldn’t you, if a panting, sweating, red-Lycra-shirted cyclist loomed into spitting distance of your personal space?

"From riding my bike to work and being chased in the street by smiling children screaming “HELLO!!!” to seeing those same children play in a sewage canal around the corner from my house, my experience in Cambodia was a total emotional roller coaster. Every day I would think that I’d seen it all, and the next day something else would happen that would make me say the same thing."

Volunteering in Cambodia at Heritage Watch

While attending high school in Cambodia in 2000, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to live and study in Canada. I spent the next year studying English and another year and a half in high school before I was accepted into university to study architectural science. During the first two years of university we were taught the history of architecture and the value of historical buildings and ancient sites. I became very interested in this line of thought, partly because I realized that my home country, Cambodia, has so many precious monuments. At the same time I also began to appreciate my own culture and heritage. As a result I chose a topic for my final thesis that examined the integration of passive and active systems to help protect ancient sites from being looted.
