Nice to have you here on our blog Visit Angkor – the site with information about Angkor, Cambodia, people & culture – out of pure passion & love! This love began in 2010, and since then we have never lost our enthusiasm for this country – on the contrary: every year we look forward to being in Cambodia more and more. We – that’s Inga and Rüdiger. Inga started this blog in 2012, Rüdiger has been with us since June 2020. Hard to believe, but we have never met in person. But we are united by our enthusiasm for Cambodia. The country, the people, simply everything is growing closer and closer to our hearts. And it is precisely this enthusiasm that we would like to share with you.
Who is writing here?
Name: Inga Palme
Age: Old enough – in the middle of the 50+ generation, to be honest :-)
Job: Self employed with Online Marketing
Favourite quote: There is nothing intelligent about not being happy [Arnaud Desjardins].
And apart from that: I like to do a bit of everything, always busy and always looking for new challenges.
Name: Rüdiger Brill
Age: 2 years younger than Inga – so not quite as long in the 50+ generation.
Job: Administrative director in a retirement residence
Leisure: Everything which makes fun
My affinity for Cambodia: I have been travelling to the country regularly for 10 years, several times a year. The course is set for a “retirement home” in a few years. People, the country, Buddhism, the climate and the food always inspire me anew. Many personal connections in the country, family, friends, aid organisations. I myself am on the board of the German support association Protect Kids Cambodia, which provides schooling for poorer children.
What is Visit Angkor about?
First of all, it’s about the temples of Angkor, the magnificent and legendary place. Many stories surround the stone contemporaries from ancient times and attract numerous tourists. The temples of Angkor, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992, are among the most impressive structures in the world. Cambodians love their ancient city of Angkor and the reverence for this monument of ancient times is omnipresent. We also write about the small and big stories, about a country and its people that have taken our hearts by storm. So writing out of pure passion & love!
We invite you to immerse yourself in a unique cultural experience around Angkor and its people. Because like everywhere else in the world, stories were and are made by people for people.
Some of the blog posts are stories and experiences of dear friends from different countries, which were created within the framework of our projects on site. We also present you with a portrait of dear people who are all connected to Cambodia in their own way.
Tourist information about Cambodia as a destination
Finding a nice hotel or guesthouse in Cambodia is certainly quite easy. And visiting the temple complex of Angkor is definitely an enrichment. But where do the locals go? What is special about these places? What opportunities are there to get a deeper insight into the country and its culture? How are weddings celebrated, what festivals are held in Siem Reap and when, which of the local dishes can also be cooked at home, what are the special features of the Khmer language? You can find out all this and much more in this blog.
