Siem Reap and Cruising the Mekong

Angkor Ban


This mornings tour was through the wonderful rural village of Angkor Ban. Under the rule of Khmer Rouge, Angkor Ban was chosen to be their home camp. The buildings in this village were used as housing and storage. Thus, while almost infrastructures in Cambodia were destroyed, the wooden houses in this village still exist until today. It seems that there’s no village in Cambodia remaining the testament to the long history of Cambodian as Angkor Ban. The people were glad to see us and the children were as friendly as you could get. We left with a great idea of what a rural farming village is all about. The crop being harvested this morning was peanuts.
