Photo Reflections: Enter the Vortex of Sihanoukvile

Nestled down on the coast of Cambodia, Sihanoukville is a charming little town that we felt conflicted by. On one hand, the pristine beaches reminded us of Tioman in Malaysia; but on the other hand, the tourism was reminiscent of Siem Reap. It is a much smaller place than Siem Reap, and the off-season vortex was really quite interesting. Tuk tuks offered us drugs on every corner. Some offered us women. We spiraled through a semi-holiday/semi-exhaustion daze through the street, looking for answers, looking for adventure. We found it mostly away from the beaches, as is usually the case. We ended up spending more time than we originally planned here, but it was a nice change of pace from the business of the other Cambodian cities we were in. I can’t imagine how it would be during high season, though. There are enough bars to get thousands drunk every night, and all the bars seemed terribly, terribly themed.
