This is also Cambodia

Jan 26, 2011

We were shocked to see an Aston Martin parked in the streets of Phnom Penh. And then I started reading the latest issue of the Economist, which we bought for a small fortune at the airport. Inequality: the rich, and the rest. It is a timely reading.

Long before we made plans to visit Phnom Penh, I had read this article in the NY Times Travel magazine about the recent wave of entrepreneurship in the Cambodian capital. Very interesting. But we also learnt that the country is the 11th most corrupt in the world. (Burma shares the sad number 1 spot with Somalia) Click on Transparency International for more.

I know the post is not about family travel, but this is also Cambodia.
