Welcome to Cambodia from inside

For more than a year I have been working with “Camboya en español” and I can say that it has been just satisfactory for me. Many persons from the Spanish world have been in touched with my dear Cambodia through that blog and I hope to dedicate more time to it.

However there are several blogs and websites about Cambodia in English, I arrived to the conclusion that blogs are not important just because they are spaces of information by themselves, but because they are experiences from people in a real time. In that case, a blog can be a good source of information because is a real experience.

There are million of blogs around the globe and surely to classify them is unthinkable. But I have two kinds that we can bring to this discussion: the blogs made by natives about their own country – I have myself two of them: Colombia Passport and Pasaporte colombiano, – and the blogs made by foreigners about the country they visit or live in, like me in Cambodia. Both kind of blogs have great differences and I am a first witness of that. It is not the same for me to write about Colombia than about Cambodia. But writing about those two nations is a passion.

Of course I want to create a good space with material directed especially to foreigners interested in Cambodia. That material is intended to create a fair image of what is Cambodia in its culture, society, traditions, mentality and others. Different to the Spanish version that focus in news, since news in Spanish about Cambodia are few, the English version will concentrate in cultural, social and economical studies.

I hope visitors to the blog can get usable information and an objective idea of Cambodia, especially tourists, investors and scholars. I invite you to let comments in the posts so we can enrich the site with a good data for others.
