20 Beautiful Photos From Cambodia That You Might Not Have Seen Yet

This is my regular collection, when I found a nice photo of Cambodia, I add to my list. These are not taken by me, but by various tourists and photographers that have been to Cambodia.

These photos are rarely and you might not find any similar to these beautiful photos. I try to add details description and attribute to the original photographer as much as I can. If any of these are your work, and you want to have more description or any link back to your work, I would be happy to add.

Enjoy !

3. Children of the lake (Cambodia) by maapu

Cambodia’s Great Lake, the Boeung Tonle Sap (Tonle Sap Lake)
In the wet season, the Tonle Sap Lake is one of the largest freshwater lakes in Asia, swelling to an expansive 12,000 km2.
The Lake is an important commercial resource, providing more than half of the fish consumed in Cambodia.

In harmony with the specialized ecosystems, the human occupations at the edges of the lake is similarly distinctive – floating villages, towering stilted houses, huge fish traps, and an economy and way of life deeply intertwined with the lake, the fish, the wildlife and the cycles of rising and falling waters.

This was taken on the 1st day of the trip. An awesome 6 days photography trip with 50 talented photographers from South East Asia.

5. Phnom Kulen, Cambodia by Frank Spee

Tried something else for a change. This group of monks decided to take a dip near the waterfall at Phnom Kulen, Cambodia. Got some sneak shots and closeups of their robes and compiled it into this. Hope you like it. I think the thick blue haze contrasts nicely with the saturated oranges.

9. The Burning Sun in Cambodia by Trey Ratcliff

I’ve never sweat as much in my life as I did while exploring the remote parts of Cambodia. This temple was about an hour by sketchy motorbike outside of Siem Reap. There was absolutely no shade anywhere, since the only parts of the temple that remained standing offered no cover at all!

10. Angkor .. Cambodia by Nicholas Kenrick

11. Angkor Wat, Cambodia by John Paul Endicott

Spring 2007
What can you say about Cambodia? It defies description and humbles each new visitor. The temple site was crumbling before our eyes. To have the chance to capture the sculptures and carvings before they crumble in to dust was a great honor. Visit Cambodia- not just for the sites- but for the people!

12. Boat Boy Sunset (Cambodia) by nabilkannan

If you are ever at the Lakeside at Phnom Penh around sunset, make sure you pay these boys to take you to the middle of the lake for an awesome view.

13. “Why are these Houses on Stilts?” Cambodia, Kampong Kleng by Christopher Schoenbohm

Why are these houses on stilts? This area, known as Kampong Kleng is prone to monsoon floods. This road is actually under water during the monsoon season. These people all make their living from fishing. Two months from now this place will look nothing like the photo. I’ve written a bit about my trip to Kampong Kleng below. The place is spectacular. Mr. Ta, who has a great eye for photography noticed the clouds above and I jumped out of the car to take a quick photo. I love the cloud formation in the background. Cambodia has numerous thunderheads that build up in the afternoon as a result of the midday heat.

14. Cyclos, Phnom Penh, Cambodia by Jérémie Montessuis

15. Cambodia:Siem Reap : Rice field by Frederic Poirot

2 days in Angkor/Siem Reap, Cambodia

This picture was taken from the bumping taxi, on the way to some temples. I was very interested by the resigned attitude of the man walking the field.

Softly through the shadow of the evening sun
Stealing past the windows of the blissfully dead”

20. Days in Cambodia by morena

My Tutu driver (3861) was a silent boy. In the last day of the whole 4 days’ journey, we had some conversation.
His father died during the Cambodia civil war when he was just born. He also told me he married, and his wife has been pregnant for 5 months.

When I returned Shanghai, I recommended 3861 to my freinds. They went to Camboida 5 months later. Then I saw the picture of the new baby.

Best wishes…

  1. What a beautiful collection. Each photo triggers fond memories of when we were in Cambodia December 2008 to January 2009. There is no other place like it. It is beautiful, mysterifying, and friendly. We will be returning to Cambodia in 2012.

  2. @Norbert, Thank you for your comment
    @Charlie, When you come back to Cambodia in 2012, for sure you would be surprise with a lot of news things coming up, not mention about 555 meters building but a lot of stuffs is moving in Phnom Penh and Cambodia.

  3. I have made todate 37 visits to Cambodia and some think I have seen and photographed plenty.
    The photos you posted are worth seeing and shows a side of Cambodia other than Pol Pot and the Killing fields. The photos you showed can enrich many minds.
    Thank you for sharing some of the beauty and tranquility Cambodia can offer the world.

  4. Greetings Santel – you have assembled a wonderful collection of photos here! I found your article when searching “John Paul Endicott” online (photographer #11 in your article). It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I must tell you that John Paul lost his life in an auto accident in July this summer. Sunday Septmeber 19th would have been his 32nd Birthday, and he is survived by a wife, son, two sibblings, his mother/father and a large group of friends who miss him dearly. John Paul traveled to over 30 countries in his short life & was an expert photogapher whose work has been published in numerous sources and books. He would be VERY proud to know that his photo was selected in your article, and we have posted a link to this online so that friends and family will also appreciate this fact. John Paul traveled to MANY places, and I know that Cambodia was very special to him. He told me personally about its beauty, and specifically, the splendor of Angkor Wat, Thank you again for acknowedging his amazing photography and for sharing it so that people across the globe can also enjoy his fine work – it is just what he would want.

  5. Thank a lot John for your comment. I feel so sorry to hear that. I am not sure how many time he visited Cambodia, but his photos are splendid. Please say hello to his wife, son and the whole family. Greeting from Cambodia!

  6. I love these pictures very much, especially the pictures of the monks at the Kulen water fall and the boy in the boat. They brought back so much memory of my childhood in Cambodia. Thanks and post some more new pictures!!!
