Our trip through the river and estuary of the park provided us with the opportunity to observe the fisher families at work. Once numbering in the hundreds, a sturdy few chose to remain when the area was declared a national park. They lead simple unhurried lives, living off whatever the sea and forest provide. Not the easiest of lives for sure, but whenever we came upon a family or group, we were treated to a friendly smile or wave. For me, this was the highlight of the trip out to Sihanoukville.

This set of images is dedicated to Chris – brother, fellow traveler and partner-in-crime. I look forward to our next adventure!

Rugged Beauty

Some images of the rugged beauty of the Preah Nihanouk “Ream” National Park. Very much unspoiled by the onslaught of modernization, the park is an amazing combination of tropical rainforest, mangrove swamp and tideland.
