Fantastic Foto Friday: Rare Proboscis Monkeys on Borneo

Borneo is called the “last frontier” and it has the wildlife to prove it! The proboscis monkeys are only found on Borneo.

Fantastic Foto Friday: Phnom Penh Riverfront Promenade

Phnom Penh River Promenade

Phnom Penh is a fast-growing city and changing quickly. It has turned from the town-trodden city in shambles after the end of the civil war in 1994 to a bustling city that you can enjoy on any budget. That becomes very obvious when you visit the riverfront promenade during sunset, when everybody enjoys the calm of the day’s end, from young couples on a date to boys playing soccer or wealthy tourists going for a stroll!
