We broke up the trip to Phnom Penh with several days visiting smaller towns and cities.
I always get renewed energy when I arrive in a big city. The possibilities of things to see and do in a place that never sleeps are endless and I can spend hours just walking around looking at all the new and foreign things. Phnom Penh didn’t let me down – it was buzzing day and night! One of the most important sights to visit in Cambodia is the S-21 Prison and the Killing Fields, both the sites of a horrific genocide with monuments and, in the case of S-21, hundreds of photographs of the victims. This made for a really hard and emotional day but helped us better understand Cambodia’s history and the resilience and spirit of it’s people.
