Gay Friendly Hostel: Mad Monkey, Siem Reap

Gay Friendly Hostel: Mad Monkey, Siem Reap

When you are a gay traveller, it’s important to feel comfortable wherever you are, and the accommodation that you choose can make or break your experience. This is why it’s important to do some research about hostels, guesthouses and hotels that are gay friendly. If you are lucky enough to find yourself in Cambodia’s cultural...
The vegetarian's guide to Phnom Penh

The vegetarian’s guide to Phnom Penh

Travelling around southeast Asia as a vegetarian can sometimes be a struggle. The region is well known for its street food and yet it’s not really possible for vegetarians to eat at popular hawker stalls because the food is usually pretty meaty, and even if it doesn’t appear to include meat or fish, it could...
Your guide to the gay saunas of Phnom Penh

Your guide to the gay saunas of Phnom Penh

I may not have quite found my place in the gay bars of Phnom Penh, but I did manage to work my way around the gay saunas of this city with quite a bit more success. In fact, the saunas I visited were all busier than the city’s gay bars. I suppose that this points...
Falling in love with village life in Mondulkiri

Falling in love with village life in Mondulkiri

I am both a city boy and a ‘home person’- it is a wonder that I travel at all. During my stay in Cambodia, I made Phnom Penh my home, and was semi-reluctant to leave. Alas, my time in Cambodia was coming to a close and I realized that I’d not seen that much of...
Getting to know the gay bars of Phnom Penh

Getting to know the gay bars of Phnom Penh

The gay scene in Phnom Penh is not limited to drag, but err, I only took photos of drag queens. I have been in Phnom Penh for a couple of months, and it’s taken me this long to put together my thoughts about the gay nightlife here and let you all know about it. I...
Budget Diaries: The cost of living in Phnom Penh

Budget Diaries: The cost of living in Phnom Penh

While travelling, I’ve been jotting down all of my expenditure. I’m not the best at managing money, so this practice has been really worthwhile and 7 months into my trip I think I’m much more financially savvy. In the past, I have broken down my expenditure across a month in one country, but this time,...
8 awesome cafes in Phnom Penh

8 awesome cafes in Phnom Penh

The dining and café culture in Phnom Penh is incredible – like, seriously one of the best places for food and drink I’ve experienced anywhere in the world. You can get (good) food from all over the world, you can enjoy a pot of tea in a comfortable atmosphere – and almost always for a...
Photos: The Drag Queens of Phnom Penh

Photos: The Drag Queens of Phnom Penh

I love a bit of drag, and I *bloody* love a drag queen. Exactly what makes men dressing up as women and lip syncing to pop songs so appealing, I am not quite sure. But to me, it represents pure joyfulness, a complete surrender to the silliness of the world. I think that having fun...
When you’re sick of Khmer food in Phnom Penh

When you’re sick of Khmer food in Phnom Penh

If you’ve been following this blog throughout my journey across Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and now Cambodia, you might have noticed that I rarely post about food. Is this because I’m not much of a foodie or find it a boring topic to write about? Not at all. I love eating. But food from south-east Asia...
Meditation at Wat Langka, Phnom Penh. Om etc.

Meditation at Wat Langka, Phnom Penh. Om etc.

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter at all, you might have noticed that I have been in Phnom Penh for a while. I find the ‘travelling’ part of travelling a little tiring, particularly in the rainy season, and so I’ve decided to make Phnom Penh my home for the summer. My posts over...
Budget Diaries: One month of spending in Cambodia

Budget Diaries: One month of spending in Cambodia

The latest of my budgeting installments takes on Cambodia. While I’ve been travelling, I’ve noted down absolutely everything I’ve spent. I’ve taken to doing this partly out of curiosity and partly because I am a backpacker travelling on a minimal budget and I need to be aware of what I’m spending my money on and...
A night at the circus in Battambang

A night at the circus in Battambang

Battambang is a pretty unassuming place. It is easy to walk around, there is very little traffic, and the centre has a nice little café culture that I was happy to make the most of for the couple of days that I was in the small city in the north-west of Cambodia. What I really...
