This is a guest post by talented travel photographer and blogger Nomadic Samuel – If I were to recommend one country I feel most should visit in SE Asia, it would likely be Cambodia. The locals are such wonderful and friendly people. Walking around cities, such as Battambang and Phnom Penh, I could see many smiling faces. For a country that has experienced as much tragedy as anywhere else in the world in recent decades, the spirit of the people shines strongly. The following is a photo essay of the people and faces of Cambodia from Phnom Penh, Battambang, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville:
