This Cambodian blog helps travelers, expats, and citizens of the world to rediscover the essence of Cambodia. The more information about Cambodia from Cambodian perspectives, the better you can really understand about Khmer people, culture, traditions, and everything in between.
Launched in 2006, Cambopedia is a playful combination of shorten Cambodia plus pedia: Cambo + pedia. Cambodia is the country in Southeast Asia, the home of the founder and publisher of this website. ‘pedia’ means learning. So Cambopedia is all about learning about Cambodia.
There are a lot of good blogs and web sites about traveling, living, or moving to Cambodia. Those Internet resources offer practical advice and useful tips.
So why Cambopedia? Back then, there were not many sites started out by any locals who could offer local perspectives: local insights into Cambodia.
Over the years, I’ve noticed three things about books, websites, and blogs about Cambodian culture. They are all written by foreigners and or expatriates. I believe there was an urgent need to have a website about Cambodian culture written by a real Cambodian. Most websites about Cambodia all start with the infamous genocide, the Khmer Rouge. The dark past that ended decades ago! Those websites read like textbooks at best and phone books at worst. I think that web sites about Cambodia should be not only informative but also entertaining.
