As a prime minister, Hun Sen has travelled a lot both domestically and internationally.
Wherever he goes, he has a popularity like a “Rockstar” that triggers love, support and envy, the charismatic leader who gathers crowd and attention. The frequency and intensity of his travelling is beyond compare and it is very hard to find any international leaders, young or senior, that can travel as much as he does.
This is not leisure traveling. This are travels that are full of agenda and energy to create an impact, some even creates history. The traveling that requires heavy physical and mental stamina. The word “healthy” alone may not be sufficient to describe the capability to carry out these heavy duties, the like of Hun Sen’s style of work and travel.
There are many examples of his intensive travel and working style.
Just before the 40th and 41st ASEAN Summits and Related Summits, Mr Hun Sen made a tour to northwestern provinces of Cambodia in late October to meet with Cambodian flood victims.
On 21 and 22 October, he met with 1,853 families and 3,200 families in two separate occasions in Siem Reap province. On 23 October, he met with more than 5,000 families in Banteay Meanchey province.
