Welcome to Cambodia: Cambodia – South East Asia’s new beach destination

Welcome to Cambodia: Cambodia – South East Asia’s new beach destination

Countries in South East Asia have some of the most stunning beaches in the world, which is why they attract so many beach going tourists. Most people are likely to head to the beaches of Thailand’s tropical islands, Indonesia’s beautiful Bali or Malaysia’s coast, however, one South East Asian country that has been overlooked on the beach front, is Cambodia.




Well known for its mysterious temples of Angkor, bottle green jungles and it’s terrifying past, people forget that Cambodia has a beautiful coastline. Unlike the beach hot spots of Thailand, Indonesia or Malaysia, Cambodia’s beach tourism is still relatively undiscovered allowing you to experience this pristine beauty as nature intended.

Cambodia is slowly carving out its place among the Asian beach players and, with new hotels and resorts going up, the coastal tourist infrastructure here is growing.
Sihanoukville is the largest town along the coast and has a buzzing, typically Cambodian atmosphere. It’s not the prettiest of towns but, is home to six beautiful and laid-back beaches. These beaches vary from those with lively bars and restaurants, with fresh seafood barbecues, to new resort developments and those left untouched, expanses of soft sugar-like sand and azure water gently lapping the shore. The beaches are particularly good for swimming.

The town of Kep lies further up the coast and has very little in terms of tourist infrastructure, even though this was actually Cambodia’s first beach resort. Kep used to be the getaway for Cambodia’s wealthy who would come here on weekends from Phnom Penh. Luxurious beach side villas were built here.

Today, Kep has a small beachfront, but some of the best seafood around. Its best beaches however, lie off shore on its peaceful islands.
The beaches of Koh Kong lie close to the border with Thailand and are emerging as popular destinations with divers, eco-tourists and beach goers alike. The beaches range from those with tourist hotels and casinos, to small and untouched, upmarket and tropical island paradises. Diving, island hopping and hiking in the stunning Cardamom Mountains with its gushing waterfalls and jungle foliage are popular pursuits here.

Cambodia has so many islands and coastal beaches waiting to be discovered and before long they will be fully marked on the tourist beach trail. Sihanoukville and Koh Kong will soon become attracted as ever before.

Welcome To Cambodia: Birds Seen In Cambodia

Welcome To Cambodia: Birds Seen In Cambodia

The forests and floodplains of Cambodia form refuges for many threatened bird species that have been extirpated from much of their former range. These include critically endangered waterbirds like giant and white-shouldered ibis as well as three species of critically endangered vultures. Great opportunity for bird-watching.


The Masked Finfoot is globally endangered, with estimates of less than 2,500 left globally, due to human disturbance and habitat loss. This mysterious fellow is seen in Cambodia.


Birds at Angkor Center for Conservation of Biodiversity (ACCB)

Who is ACCB?

The organisations implementing the ACCB project, Münster Zoo and its partner organisation Zoological Society for the Conservation of Species and Populations (ZGAP), have a long professional involvement in Indochina. They were among the first conservation organisations to conduct surveys of endangered primate species in Vietnam. Both organisations, working independently and in cooperation, support conservation programmes in approximately 30 nations in Europe, Asia, Africa and South America, and work with local and international partners to address conservation issues and to promote sustainable natural resource management practices. The chairmen of both organisations, Mr H. Jörg Adler and Mr Roland Wirth, are members of several IUCN/ Species Survival Commission (SSC) Specialist Groups.

Münster Zoo has been implementing the World Zoo and Aquarium Conservation Strategy for many years. In situ conservation is considered as one of the zoo’s main missions. Consequently, it has been the first zoo in Germany to establish a cost unit for in situ conservation as well as a permanent position for a curator overseeing overseas projects.

Major financial support for the ACCB has so far been provided by Dr. Stephan Goetz from Munich, via the German foundation Stiftung Artenschutz, a joint initiative currently comprising 50 respected zoos and nature conservation organisations.

The team on site

Since December 2009, the project is managed on site by the German biologist Markus Handschuh (who had been the Collection Manager of ACCB since January 2007) who is supported by the deputy project manager Alistair Mould since March 2010.
The ACCB permanently employs around 20 staff, most of which are Cambodian, in the fields of management, administration and conservation planning, environmental education and sustainable natural resource use, animal keeping, gardening/ site support team, and security. Additionally, temporary staff are hired as required for special projects.

Greater Adjutant (Leptoptilos dubius)

The Greater Adjutant is a large stork reaching a body length of 145-150 cm with a wingspan of 250 cm. The plumage is black on the upper side of the wings and body, and whitish or light grey on the lower side. The pink neck and head are bald, adapted to life as a scavenger. Plumage on the head would quickly clog with blood and matter, a bald head is easier to keep clean. The yellow beak is long, thick and strong. Feeding not exclusively on carrion, the bird also eats small amphibians and reptiles. The Greater Adjutant inhabits tropical wetlands in South East Asia, breeding sites are however limited to Assam and Cambodia. The nests are built in trees; a clutch mostly consists of 2-4 eggs. Like other storks the species often forms colonies. Listed by the IUCN as endangered, this bird is mainly endangered by the loss of breeding places and the continuous loss of habitat.

Lesser Adjutant (Leptoptilos javanicus)
Smaller than his relative, the Lesser Adjutant reaches a body length of 110-120 cm with a wingspan of 210 cm. His long, thick and lightly coloured beak is slightly thinner. The plumage is black on the upper side of the wings and body, and light grey on the lower side. In contrast to the Greater Adjutant this species does not have a white ruff at the base of the neck or a large neck pouch. It mainly feeds on fish, but also small amphibians, crustaceans, crickets and small rodents. Loss of breeding sites and the continuous destruction of habitats – tropical wetlands in South East Asia – resulted in this species being listed as vulnerable by the IUCN.

Water birds
Various types of water birds are still common throughout the region and can be found in marshes, paddyfields, lakes, mud flats, pastures and mangroves. The long-legged Egrets and Herons catch fish, crabs and insects by stabbing them with their long pointed bills. Most ducks feed on vegetation in addition to small insects and aquatic organisms.
Different species of water birds, like Asian Openbill (Anastomus oscitans), Cattle Egret (Bubulcus ibis), Black-crowned Night Heron (Nycticorax nycticorax), Little Egret (Egretta garzetta) and Lesser Whistling-Duck (Dendrocygna javanica) are kept in the ACCB. Regularly hunted for human consumption, these birds can often be found for sale in local markets. Large scale hunting has substantially reduced the number of the larger species throughout the region.

Raptors
There are two kinds of raptors in the ACCB: two species of kites, the Crested Serpent Eagle (Spilornes cheela) and the Brahminy Kite (Haliastur Indus), and on the other hand an owl species, the Collared Scops Owl (Otus lettia). Brahminy Kites are up to 50 cm big raptors, which live at rivers, lakes and paddyfields all over Southeast-Asia. They feed on crabs, snakes, fish, frogs, insects and also carrion.

Green Peafowl (Pavo muticus)
The Green Peafowl is a large terrestrial bird that prefers open forest habitat such as dry deciduous forest with grassy understoreys and forest edges along ponds or rivers. In these habitats it can find its preferred foods of grain, seeds, shoots, buds, leaves, fruits, insects, frogs and lizards. Cambodia is one of the last strongholds of this species in the world. The status of the Green Peafowl in the Red List is vulnerable. The species’ decline is due to habitat destruction and hunting for their beautiful feathers, the birds themselves which are kept as pets, and their eggs.

Further bird species kept at the ACCB
Furthermore, another bird species is kept in the ACCB, the Red-breasted Parakeet (Psittacula alexandri). This species is divided into seven sub-species and widely distributed over Southeast-Asia. These birds often live in the vicinity of human settlements and in parks and feed on fruits, nuts, buds and leaves.

Welcome to Cambodia: Thailand-Cambodia Relations With Bright Signal After Yingluck's Visit

Welcome to Cambodia: Thailand-Cambodia Relations With Bright Signal After Yingluck's Visit

The relationship between the two countries Cambodia and Thailand seem to have a bright signal after Thai Prime minister Yingluck's first visit.

Let track the news from Cambodia newspaper...

Relations back on track (Phnompenhpost)

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen had held a closed-door discussion with his Thai counterpart Yingluck Shinawatra after she arrived in Phnom Penh yesterday and the two had agreed to wide-ranging co-operation on trade, tourism, oil and gas in the Overlapping Claims Area, the Preah Vihear border and the imprisonment of two Thai nationals for spying, high-ranking Cambodian officials said.

Khieu Kanharith, Cambodia’s Minister of Information and spokesman for the government, told reporters about an hour after the meeting that Yingluck’s visit was a mission to bring the two countries closer together.

“The visit of Yingluck was a mission to restore diplomatic ties,” he said.

Hor Namhong, Cambodia’s Foreign Minister, told reporters that Yingluck and Hun Sen wanted to see Cambodian and Thai soldiers keep holding meetings with each other to develop a good environment and relationship before the deployment of Indonesian observers to the demilitarised zone created by the International Court of Justice in July.

“We can say that the negotiation was successful and in a good atmosphere, there was mutual understanding and we agreed to do whatever to continue facilitating all fields of co-operation for development,” Nor Namhong said.

“Samdach [Hun Sen] said Cambodia cannot withdraw troops from the 4.6 kilometre square area, and we will keep this issue for the ICJ. If the ICJ judges that the area belongs to Thailand, Cambodia will offer it to Thailand.”

Hor Namhong also said the Cambodian government would not be able to release jailed Thai pair Veera Somkwamkid and Ratree Pipattanapaiboon.

“Yingluck also raised the issue of the two Thais who are imprisoned in Cambodia, and Samdach [Hun Sen] said the government was monitoring the case. We would request the King for a reduction in their jail terms step by step, but they have to obey Cambodia’s laws and serve two-thirds of the jail term,” he said.

Hun Sen had asked Yingluck to resume public negotiations on the OCA, based on the memorandum of understanding signed in 2001 and using existing mechanisms, Hor Namhong said.

He added that more border gates with Thailand would need to be opened for the flow of trade and tourism.

Let read another news from VOA...

Yingluck Visit Boosts Thai-Cambodia Relations

Thailand’s recently elected Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has made her first official visit to Cambodia. The one-day trip marks a new start in bilateral relations, which have been poor in recent years.

Thai premier Yingluck Shinawatra and her Cambodian counterpart Hun Sen have begun the process of rebalancing matters between the two neighbors, after years of deterioration.

New allies?

Phnom Penh was openly thrilled in July when Yingluck’s party won Thailand’s general election and replaced the Abhisit government that Cambodia felt it could not work with.

Prime Minister Yingluck leads the political party of her brother, Thaksin Shinawatra, a former prime minister and an ally of Hun Sen.

Abhisit’s tenure saw relations between the two nations decline to their lowest point in years and was marked by an escalating war of words and a series of border clashes that left at least 28 dead this year. ASEAN group chair Indonesia led efforts to mediate a ceasefire.

And in July the International Court of Justice in The Hague ruled both sides must withdraw troops from disputed land near the Preah Vihear temple.

Bilateral meeting

Cambodia’s Information Minister Khieu Kanharith says the two leaders discussed the issue in Phnom Penh.

"First of all, when we talk about border, prime minister [Hun Sen] says we have to follow the decision of the International Court, and also keep the role of the Indonesians," said Kanharith. "The Thai prime minister agreed."

Khieu Kanharith says Cambodia and Thailand have also agreed to work together to clamp down on cross-border crime.

Business trip

Thailand said it would send a group of businessmen to Cambodia later this year to try and boost trade and investment. Trade has been flat for the past year or two, while Thai investment into Cambodia collapsed.

Another bone of contention this year was the jailing in January of two Thai nationalists, Veera and Ratree, who crossed into Cambodia illegally. The two received sentences of six and eight years, and Phnom Penh has said many times since that they will not be entitled to release until serving at least two-thirds of their term.

But Khieu Kanharith hinted some movement might be forthcoming.

"As a message to the mother of Veera and the sister of Ratree, that the government is seeking the way to have the release of the two convicts according to Cambodian legal procedure," said Kanharith.

He said Cambodia's king is entitled to reduce sentences, even though the government would not.

Optimism

In summary, Kanharith said the talks were fruitful.

Earlier, Cambodian government spokesman Koy Kuong had said he expected the visit to restore bilateral relations and cooperation in all fields, with an emphasis on resolving differences through dialogue.

Outstanding issues between the countries include demarcating disputed stretches of their border, a process that stalled under Abhisit, and how to share oil and gas in a 27,000-square-kilometer zone in the Gulf of Thailand.

I strongly hope that the relationship between Cambodia and Thailand will be back to normal as the period of former Thai's prime minister Thaksin's power...

Welcome to Cambodia: Yingluck, Thaksin Shinawatra, Welcome to Cambodia

Yingluck Shinawatra, (born 21 June 1967), is a Thai businesswoman and politician, member of the Pheu Thai Party, and the 28th Prime Minister of Thailand following the 2011 general election. Yingluck is Thailand's first female Prime Minister.

Born in Chiang Mai province, Yingluck Shinawatra earned bachelor's degree from Chiang Mai University and master's degree from Kentucky State University, both in public administration. She became an executive in the businesses founded by her elder brother, Thaksin Shinawatra, and later became the president of property developer SC Asset and managing director of Advanced Info Service. Meanwhile, her brother Thaksin became Prime Minister, was overthrown in a military coup, and went into self-imposed exile after a tribunal convicted him of abuse of power.

In May 2011, the Pheu Thai Party, which maintained close ties to Thaksin, nominated Yingluck as their candidate for Prime Minister in the 2011 general election. Preliminary election result indicated that Pheu Thai won a landslide victory 265 out of 500-seat House of Representatives of Thailand, making it only the second time in Thai political history that a single party won a parliamentary majority.


Thaksin Shinawatra (born 26 July 1949) is a Thai businessman and politician, who was Prime Minister of Thailand from 2001 to 2006, when he was overthrown in a military coup.

Thaksin founded Advanced Info Service, Thailand's most successful mobile phone operator, and became a billionaire. Thaksin entered politics in 1994 under Phalang Dharma Party, left the party along with many of its MPs in 1996, and founded the populist Thai Rak Thai (TRT) party in 1998. After a historic election victory in 2001, he became prime minister, the country's first to serve a full term. Thaksin introduced a range of policies to alleviate rural poverty; highly popular, they helped reduce poverty by half in four years. He launched the country's first universal healthcare program, the 30-baht scheme, as well as a highly popular drug suppression campaign. Thaksin embarked on a massive program of infrastructure investment, including roads, public transit, and Suvarnabhumi Airport. Nevertheless, public sector debt fell from 57% of GDP in January 2001 to 41% in September 2006. Levels of corruption were perceived to have fallen, with Transparency International's Corruption Perceptions Index improving from 3.2 to 3.8 between 2001 and 2005. The Thai Rak Thai party won an unprecedented landslide in the 2005 general election, which had the highest voter turnout in Thai history.

The Shinawatra government faced allegations of corruption, authoritarianism, treason, conflicts of interest, acting non-diplomatically, and muzzling of the press. Thaksin was accused of tax evasion, lèse majesté (insulting King Bhumibol, and selling assets of Thai companies to international investors. Independent bodies, including Amnesty International, criticized Thaksin's human rights record. Thaksin was also pressed charged for concealing his wealth during his premier.

Yingluck First Visit to Cambodia:

According to Phnompenhpost, Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra is set to arrive in Cambodia on September 15 for her first official meeting with Prime Minister Hun Sen.

Cambodian officials have enthusiastically welcomed the triumph of Yingluck – the youngest sister of former Thai prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra – and expressed hope that the change at Thailand’s Government House will renew ties and resolve the long-standing border conflict.

Thaksin to visit Cambodia on Friday : Hun Sen

And based on the news from THE NATION, Former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra will visit Cambodia on Friday to attend a conference on the Asian economy - not to negotiate petroleum resources in the countries' overlapping claims area in the Gulf of Thailand as speculated, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen said yesterday.

"Thaksin's visit to Cambodia was scheduled before the official visit of newly elected Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, who will visit Cambodia on [Thursday]," he said during a graduation ceremony of 4,100 students at the National University of Management in Phnom Penh.

"But the visit of Thaksin on [Friday] until Sept 24 is to join the Asian Economic Future Conference, organised by the Royal Academy of Cambodia, not to talk with Cambodia on oil and gas issues," Hun Sen was quoted as saying by China's state-owned Xinhua news agency.

"Thaksin has no duty to negotiate on oil and gas deals and other issues with Cambodia at all, as it is the duty of the Thai government, not Thaksin," Hun Sen said.

Cambodia and Thailand entered into a memorandum of understanding regarding their overlapping maritime claims on the continental shelf in June 2001, setting out an agreed area to be delimited and an agreed joint development area, but the talks stalled during the administration of former Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva...

I hope that the visit of Shinawatra family will make good relationship between Cambodia and Thailand not like the relationship between the two countries during Abhisit Vejjajiva's power.

Welcome To Cambodia: Siem Reap Named One of the World’s Best Cities

Welcome To Cambodia: Siem Reap Named One of the World’s Best Cities



Welcome to Cambodia: Siem Reap Angkor Wat


Siem Reap was singled out as “one of the world’s best cities” in the latest annual reader survey published by renowned Travel + Leisure magazine. Citing the city’s evolution from “a cluster of riverfront villages in northwestern Cambodia into a full-fledged destination,” the magazine praised Siem Reap for its magnificent temple sites and myriad recreational and cultural attractions.

Siem Reap scored an 87.9 on a possible scale of 100 in Travel + Leisure’s “World’s Best Cities Awards,” which ranked it the 2nd best Asian city, and the 7th best city in the world. In the write-up in their August 2011 issue, the widely circulated travel magazine highlighted must-see stops in town including Angkor Archaeological Park, boutique handicraft store Artisans d’Angkor, the McDermott Gallery (currently showcasing modern white and black Angkor Wat photography), and Sofitel Angkor Phokeethra Golf and Spa Resort.

Travel + Leisure is a monthly travel magazine with over 4.8 million readers. This year marks the 16th annual “World’s Best Awards” —a yearly survey ranking readers’ favorite cities, hotels, cruises, and spas. Cities were ranked based on their sights, culture/arts, restaurants/food, people, shopping and value.

In a press release announcing the winners, Travel + Leisure editor-in-chief Nancy Novogrod said, “exotic destinations—places that convey a sense of authenticity and adventure—are ruling the day once again.”
