A photojournal of Ed's travels

Day Five – Angkor Butterfly Centre

As a counterpoint to the Landmine Museum and to get some nature into our day, we stopped at the ABC on the way back to Siem Reap. A little place right off the road that looked just like the surrounding woods aside from the net stretched over it, ABC trains local farmers to raise butterflies as a way to supplement their incomes. The butterflies are brought to ABC and sold all over the world.


It was a treat to be somewhere full of butterflies, heavy with orchids and the other tropical flowers that just grow here.

Then, back in the van, back to town, and off to rest, and a dinner and massage. Mmm…

Next up, Ta Prohm and Preah Khan.
