BG Dispatch: Cambodia

We were lucky enough to make a trek to Cambodia for two of the men’s shoots in our March Issue.  It was an ideal setting: dynamic landscapes, remarkable architecture and vibrant cities.

In Phnom Penh, we became addicted to shrimp and fish amok, a curry served with rice.  In Siem Reap, the ancient architecture lived up to its reputation. It’s an extraordinary country, and it doesn’t take long to get used to being bicycled around in a tuk tuk.  And then there’s the stunning Amansara Hotel, which was the former King’s guest villa.  At night, lit by candles, it’s one of the most gracious places we’ve ever stayed.
