Contemplative Photo Exhibition
An exhibition of elegant black and white shots of scenes of Buddhist contemplation, taken by Los Angeles-based photographer Brian English will open tonight, Friday August 5, at Angkor Hospital for Children as part of the hospital’s launch of its new Community Corner.

English, who previously worked with renowned photographers Annie Leibovitz and Robert Mapplethorpe, will have his 15-photo series shown alongside an exhibition of photographs by children from local NGO Anjali House.

English’s exhibition is titled Mani Padma, or Flower of the Lotus, and the photos show simple objects associated with the life of Buddha, including portraits and representations created by his followers over the centuries, according to a press release issued by the hospital.

Following tonight’s launch party, a raffle of spa memberships, restaurant dinners and massage vouchers donated by local businesses will be held to raise money for the paediatric care unit of the hospital.

Angkor Palace Resort Rebrands
Angkor Palace Resort & Spa is repositioning itself to take advantage of the burgeoning Chinese tourism market in Siem Reap.

On Monday August 1 the resort was officially rebranded as Grand Soluxe Angkor Palace Resort & Spa. Senior Cambodian government officials and leaders from the China Huayou Corporation presided at the opening ceremony.

The new partnership came about after Ly Hong, chairman and owner of the resort, embarked on negotiations with the Soluxe Hospitality Group, a powerful hospitality arm of the China Huayou Corporation Group, a subsidiary of the Chinese government-owned China National Petroleum Corporation.

Ly Hong said: “We hope that by our partnership with the Soluxe Hospitality Group, I can help my country attract more of the high yielding Chinese tourists to visit our magnificent Angkor temples.”

The resort’s long-serving general manager Weng Aow said: “We have been looking at directions to strengthen our position in this increasingly competitive Siem Reap tourism market for a long time.

“In many ways, this partnership between Soluxe Hospitality Group and Angkor Palace forms a perfect fit.”

Soluxe Hospitality Group is a Beijing-based international hotel group, with its own hotel brands, namely Grand Soluxe, Soluxe, Soluxe Courtyard and Soluxe Inn.

The hotel group has over 60 hotels within and outside of China under its various brand names.
