Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh is the bustling capital city of Cambodia. It’s most certainly more developed than any other city in Cambodia, with lots of expats looking to make a living or starting their second-life.


It seemed like most travellers, like myself, only go to Phnom Penh for the obligatory visit to Choeung Ek (the Killing Fields) and Tuol Sleng (S-21 Museum) or a connection elsewhere.

While repulsively depressing, shocking and brutal, visiting these sites are a must when in the city. It’ll give you a much deeper understanding of the country and its people. However, the sad thing is most of the younger Khlmers only have a bare minimum knowledge of it themselves.

Oh you’ll also notice a lot of restaurants selling happy pizza, happy shakes and other happy things. Take a second to learn what it means before you actually order it. You might get more than you’re looking for!
