The always vibrant city of Phnom Penh at night

As a professional photographer and photo tour guide who lives in Phnom Penh, I keep being fascinated by the liveliness of the streets just before sunset. People brought home on a "rickshaw" or "cyclo" as they are called here, fathers taking the whole family for takeaway grilled chicken on motorbikes. Everyone drives bikes. Safety or wearing a helmet? What are you talking about?

The McDonalds of Phnom Penh

Whenever I have the chance, I take a photography walk in the evenings. Imagine being there after a monsoon rain: the smell and the heat and the lingering smoke over the food stalls.

Local food market in Phnom Penh

The most exciting and fascinating for me is that they don’t go to McDonald's. They eat the local food fresh of the day, made and cooked right there in the market. It’s straight from the farm, and I can tell you, it is very delicious. When I go to Amsterdam for some photoshoots this month, It might be the ONE thing I will miss most. Walking around surrounded by the pure locals of Phnom Penh.
