In the last decade, Cambodia became an international destination. The tourist industry came to be one of the main sectors in a country with many archaeological and historical treasures of the ancient Khmer civilization in the Southeast Asia. At the same time, foreign investment is growing as there is more political and social stability, while Cambodia is more integrated in regional bodies like ASEAN.

The English language became also a lingua franca in the Kingdom, plus the use of other major languages like French, Chinese, Vietnamese and Thai.

It is out f discussion that every expatriate in Cambodia should learn some or all Khmer language to link him/herself to the Cambodian social heart.

Talking Khmer language, even in basic bases, will open to you several doors in the Kingdom of Wonder.

  1. The Special Concrete Wall Hotel

    This is a hotel is decorated with exposed wires and raw concrete walls, colorful furniture and unique texture, leading to furniture shop in Cambodia construction materials reported.
    By this way this amazing hip hotel is housed in a mid-century building that now is restored, renovated and reimaged with the vital interior.
    One more thing the concept of this hotel reminds us a bit of a colorful whipping top when it spins, it is a blur of colors but you can see the true pattern when it stops.
    Anyway the concrete walls are actually photograph s of striped concrete such artistic and creative wallpaper.
