Phnom Penh - Greetings from Cambodia, where tourism is attempting a comeback. Cambodia is in the top 10 of vaccinated countries, and they have now reopened without quarantine restrictions.
My normal procedure for New Year’s Eve is to go to a beach and reflect on the year that was and the year to come. I was in Cambodia for NYE four years ago, and I went to Otres Beach on that trip. No beach for me this time, so I will find a riverside setting instead.
Wherever you are, hope your 2022 is a good one!
