Cambodian Genocide Tour: The Killing Fields and Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum in Phnom Penh

I have a thing with dark tourism. While it may come across creepy for some people, I think I could see it from a different perspective in a way that there were times when humanity failed that we should never go back to where it was.

It’s the same reason why I like reading books related to dark history like the Holocaust. The top of my bucket list includes visiting Auschwitz and Srebenica if one day I get a chance to land somewhere around Europe. I’d also like to go to where the assassinations of Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy took place in America.

Who am I kidding? I definitely wouldn’t miss Sarajevo if one day I go to Bosnia, so I could see the spot where Franz Ferdinand got shot. The list goes on, and my interest in dark tourism is also why I couldn’t miss the genocide tour when I was in Cambodia.

Apart from a cemetery, I think the dark history is also something that I could trace back in my travel to remind myself that I should never take things for granted with the life I have now. As hard as it feels like in some days, I’ve got it easy.

The Best Tour Options and Things to Do in Kampot: Bokor Mountain or Pepper Plantation?

Hi everyone! 

I’ve been feeling demotivated lately, and I’ve been packed with works to the point that it takes a while for me to continue another post covering my last Indochina trip. So, apologies as it took a while since I published the review for Two Moons Hotel Kampot

A Guide to Find an Online Job: Things You Need to Know Before You Start Applying

I’ve been on some kind of writer’s block lately. I mean, I want to write a review of some new skincare products that I’ve purchased recently, but then I got too lazy to even take a proper pic for the post.
