Continuing with my Ratanakiri story…

Ratanakiri, located in the far northeast of Cambodia, is home to several indigenous tribes most of which still reside in the jungles and practice their traditions pretty much the same way as they have in the past.

The Kroeungs, one of the indigenous hill tribes in Ratanakiri, and has one of the most interesting, unique traditions. It is customary for teenage boys and girls when they are 16-18 years to build so-called “bachelor/bachelorette” houses, such as the ones you see below.

Examples of the unique bachelor/bachelorette houses for teenagers of the Kroeung tribe in Ratanakiri.
