In BKK in the khao San rd area and in HCMC in the backpacker's area, there are a few agencies that can help you get a teaching job then take care of visa and other things for you but I'm not sure if they have those in Cambodia. You should travel to combodia and ask around Siem Reap and Phnom Penh to see if there are any.

Travel Tips for Phnom Penh

The Krama

by Unknownsu

Cambodians traditionally wear a checkered scarf called a krama. The krama is what distinctly separates the Khmer (Cambodians) from their neighbors the Thai, the Vietnamese, and the Laotians. The scarf is used for many purposes including for style, protection from the sun, an aid (for your feet) when climbing trees, a hammock for infants, a towel, or as a sarong.

Riverside Blues

by DrewV

The riverside has become a city park, much as in many cities across the world. The beaten and ragged flags of communist countries still fly from flagpoles along the banks. Still, the view of the peacefully flowing rivers makes for a lovely setting for family get-togethers and heroin deals. If you can get past the stench. A stinky river, this. Rather like Savannah, Georgia. A bit putrid.

The river itself makes for an interesting, but sad, story. The Tonle Sap river flows from the Tomle Sap lake, which covers a large portion of northeast Cambodia. The lake is an essential part of the local agriculture. Every year, as the Mekong floodwaters roar down from China, the waters become so great that they cause hte Tonle Sap to reverse its flow, bringing live-giving soil and fish to the Cambodian hinterland. For many years, the reversal of the waters was celebrated as an annual thanksgiving holiday.

Recently, however, Chinese dams have reduced the flooding to nearly devestating levels, causing massive damage to Cambodia's agriculture. This merely confirms one of my deepest-held beliefs. Mess with nature to your peril. If God had meant for the Mekong (or Colorado or Columbia or Nile etc. etc. etc.) to be dammed, he would have created hundred-foot-tall beavers.

The Water Festival

by ValbyDK

The Water Festival is an annual 3-day festival, and is (together with the Khmer New Year) one of the most important holidays for Cambodians and attracts millions of people from all over the country. In Khmer, the festival is called “Bonn Om Toeuk” and it celebrates the end of the rainy season, the start of the fishing season - and also a unique natural phenomenon; the flow of the Tonlé Sap River changing direction.

I have never heard of any other river which flows in opposite directions at different times of the year. From November to May, the river runs into the Mekong River, but the monsoon rain is forcing it to change direction and flow back into the Tonlé Sap Lake.

The highlight of the Water Festival is the boat races on the Tonlé Sap River, and more than 300 boats take part in the races. The boats are beautiful decorated and can be up to 20meters long and contain up to 60 oarsmen. The river banks are crowded with enthusiastic spectators, food stands, fair rides and much more… Amazing scenery…

The Water Festival was the highlight of my stay in Phnom Penh.

photography checklist

by richiecdisc

Backpack is the easiest way to lug your stuff around Southeast Asia. You can avoid the touts when you show you are quite able to get from point A to point B without their help. Sturdy walking shoes are a must but bring or buy some type of sandals as it can get mighty hot in tropical Cambodia. A wide angle lens is essential for capturing buildings you can't quite get far enough away from in the cramped streets of the city. A zoom is indispensible for getting closeups of detailed carvings on ornate architecture.

Choeung Ek

by xaver

betwen 1975 and 1978 about 17000 people had been brought in this killing field, many of them had been beaten to death, just to save shots.Now you only see a green field with some kids offering themselves for pictures and a huge monument full of skulls and pieces of clothes.
