Cambodia displays its natural wonder

An accommodation in Chi Phat
Inside a breezy bamboo structure in this village in the remote province of Koh Kong, near the Thai border in southwestern Cambodia, a dozen or so foreigners sat for a communal dinner of chicken curry and Angkor Beer. Cinnamon-hued cattle and elderly women wearing ikat sarongs and checkered scarves ambled along the dusty road outside.

Eating by the light given off by fishing cages doubling as lamps, the group recounted the day’s activities: birdwatching at sunrise, mountain biking across rocky streams, swimming in waterfalls. And fending off rainforest leeches.

“The bite is no worse than a large mosquito,” said David Lambert, a strapping Englishman.
