Once, someone told me that the most amazing experiences happen when you get lost. In Kampot, a quiet, colonial town in Cambodia I discovered that it is true.
Cambodia’s history is full of light and darkness, of greatness and terror, and we should learn them both. And not only learn, we should talk about it, shout it to the wind, because episodes of genocide like the one Cambodia went through should never happen again.
Koh Trong is a small island in the Mekong, placed in front of Kratie. It is beautiful and an ideal place to discover the rural part of Cambodia, but the best of it is its people.
There is only one border crossing from Laos to Cambodia, and it is a hard (corrupted) one. This is some information about the border crossing (including transport, visa on arrival and scams) completed with my experience crossing there in January 2015, and updated with the feedback from other travelers in 2016.
