Phnom Penh, Cambodia
A popular square in front of the Royal Palace. Cambodia has still a king, although his position is controversial because he supported Khmer Rouge and Pol Pot. During the reign of Pol Pot over million Cambodians were terminated in the process of creating a Marxist agricultural utopia.
A man at work. For example a hotel worker earns US$ 20 a month. The country is one of the poorest in the world. It is perceived to be less developed than Vietnam. The positive aspect is that there is less pollution and people are not so arrogant.
How about some frog legs for dinner? Cambodia was colonized by the French. However, there are still many reminders left: colonial acrhitecture, traffic signs in French, affordable French red wine, baquette bread, and a wide selection of cheese.
