Welcome to LIFT issue 3

Welcome to LIFT issue 3

Lift is expanding, and we need you to be a part of it! This week we are ramping up our efforts to build an online community of upwardly-mobile young Cambodians. Look on the back page of this issue for details on how you can help lift our magazine online.

We will also be distributing 2,000 extra copies of Lift to universities across the country, making our total distribution of free copies 6,000. If you still can’t find a copy, all of our content can be seen online as well. You can also buy the Khmer or English edition of The Phnom Penh Post every Wednesday with Lift inside.

This week’s issue is about tourism, because we are proud of our country and we want to share it with the world. The Kingdom of Cambodia is home to some of the most beautiful places and beautiful people in the world, making it an ideal tourist destination.

Everything that we need to attract tourists is already here; sandy beaches, untouched islands, pristine jungles and a fascinating history. However, we must build a supporting infrastructure.

We are beginning a discussion of tourism in this issue, but we desperately want you to join in the conversation. Send your reactions to this issue to [email protected] or through our online groups, and we will print them in our next issue.
