This truly captured the essence of Prasat Preah Vihear temple in Northern Cambodia. A beautiful ancient temple that is home to some of the Cambodian military and their families who are protecting it from Thailand. Everyone was thrilled to see that we made the journey to visit them and the kids, despite living in a war zone, were running around playing and having fun.
Location: Prasat Preah Vihear Temple, Preah Vihear province, Cambodia
