Cambodia has become a part of film spot interested by the foreign filmmakers?. If you used to watch 'TRANSFORMERS 3 : Dark side of the moon', you would notice that part of the movie was shot at Angkor temple. Not only this foreign movie but also other ones such as Lara Croft : Tomb Raider, Almayer's Folly, Same Same But Different, The Sea Wall, City of Ghosts, Holy Lola, Two Brothers, R Point etc., according to The Cambodia Film Commission.
Recently, the number of local films have been produced more and more, and in those there is also action movie category, and I think that the action films gaining more popular nationwide among other categories but it still faced some challenges on finding the stunt team to support.

Are you a traveller or an explorer who likes helping others find the best spots in town, and making new friends around the world?

If yes, I personally recommend you to join a new Google's community program, Google Local Guides, which was publicly announced in the blog post on November 13, 2015.

Local Guides is a global community of explorers who share photos, answer local questions, add or fix places, and write reviews on Google Maps. Millions of people rely on contributions like yours to decide where to go and what to do.
If you are asking me any reasons to join this Google Local Guides? For me, I have five reasons to join:

1. Contribute to society 
Since I have known the power of Google Maps, I always use it for my travel and then I have been starting to contribute in order to promote the local places thru adding new places, photos, reviews, and editing information, mostly in Cambodia, to the world. Helping others mean you help your society too.

2. Help others find the best places
As a local guide, I can help other people find where to go and what to do based on my own experiences, and not only I always help others but also they can help me find the best new places that I will plan to go and to do. Millions of people rely on contributions like mine to decide where to go and what to do.

3. Get benefits from Google
Once you sign up, every place you contribute to in Google Maps earns you points towards unlocking something new—from early access to new products to exclusive contests and events (Local Guides Level 5 Summit etc.), bonus Drive storage, and more. Honestly, I am one of level 5 local guides in Cambodia, so those benefits I had already - it's your turn!.

You can earn points and level up (level 1 to 5) by writing reviews, uploading photos, adding new places, fixing outdated information, and answering simple questions. Each contribution type is worth one point, so you can earn up to five points per place. Read more on the official help.

4. Make new friends
Thousands of people joining the community at everywhere Google Maps is available. Due to the recent introduction to new community forum for local guides, Local Guides Connect - a new way for us to start conversations, swap local tips, and plan meet-ups with a friendly community of fellow explorers in our areas. It is a good chance to keep in touch, even face-to-face, and make new friends with other local guides in the globe.

The Beauty of Battambang City

Have you ever visited Battambang province? What are your places of interest?

Battambang located in the northwestern of Cambodia which contains 14 districts, 92 communes, and 800 villages. It is the second most popular city in the country after Phnom Penh. The provincial capital, also Battambang, has always been a popular destination for its nearby ancient temples, French colonial architecture, bamboo train, traditional Cambodian houses, Khmer Rouge period killing fields, and Buddhist shrines. Th town is at the heart of Cambodia's 'rice bowl', and it maintains an untouched, bucolic feel.

Places of interest include Phnom Sampeu, a hill with caves of Buddha statues; the 12th Century Prasat Snung, Wat Banan, an Angkorian temple now occupied as a Buddhist shrine; Wat Baydamram where thousands of fruit bats reside, Wat Ek Phnom, Kamping Puoy reservoir, and Banan grape-wine farms, according to the official tourism of Cambodia.

To show you as mentioned above, I have found two videos that showed the beauty of this city through normal and drone videography:

Video #1  titled 'The City of Battambang - Memory of the Old Time' that made by @homePhotography & Media Professional Studio. The places were highlighted such as Maison Wat Kor Boutique Hotel, Provincial Hall, Provincial National Bank, Sangke River, Phsar Nath Market, Grape Farm, and Bamboo train, Nori. Watch it out!

With the increasing number of internet users year by year especially on mobile phones, Cambodian presently are willing to know more about the world through online medias beside relying on the traditional ways, televisions, and radios. So, the website is playing more important role in delivering this kind of news to them.

You will ask for what are the top 10 websites in Cambodia?

If you want to find the 10 most popular websites in Cambodia, the top 4 go to foreign sites (#1 Facebook, #2 Youtube, #3 Google, #4 Google.com.kh - domain name in Khmer). Here, I would like to share only the list consists of top 10 websites that belong to Cambodian companies, collected data from Alexa (rank), SimilarWeb (traffic overview), Google PageSpeed (page speed for website), and Facebook (number of fans).

Note: All the websites are available in Khmer language and in news portal (8 sites mostly focus on entertainment,  1 site converts from the paper-based news, and another one specifies on health news).

Sabay Digital Corporation is a leading digital media and entertainment group in Cambodia which formerly known as CIDC Information Technology was formed in 2007. Of course, young Cambodian will know this company by brand name 'Sabay' on its entertainment contents (Sabay News and Sabay Leng or Sabay Games, I could say that). Most traffic sources come from sharing on social medias, I think this reason why recently Sabay News portal has extended the channel to spread news on different categories using Facebook pages (Sabay News Entertainment, Sabay News Technology, Sabay News Social, and Sabay News Sport).
