TravelPod Member ReviewsBlue River Hotel Phnom Penh
Had better food, better views and cleaner stays for less, but it's spacious and grand, and the staff are great. It's further outside the city than we had hoped, but the tuktuk rides are entertaining at every turn. Extra cost amount to about 5 USD each way, up to 20/day if you want to go back midday and out in the evening. Look for better deals around the river walk, where food and drink options are a-plenty. All the extra services - sauna/steam rm were closed, but the pool was small but nice setting.

On our last night we ended up playing pool and table football in a local bar, joined by a Swedish bloke and a Cambodian who it turned out nobody knew. All good fun and me and Angela picked up the drinking whilst Phil played pool with the Swede. After ...

10minutes later we arrived at a coach that had pulled over where I was practically thrown on to the vehicle, backpack and all and then sped off in a direction of which I was hoping was Phnom Penh.

The entire population of Cambodia was enslaved...sent away from their homes to forced labour camps in the fields of the outer rural areas. Every big city was emptied of it's people...either sent to camps, emprisonned or sent directly to the killing fields. Pol Pot believed in a communist society consisting only of farmers and labourers...every intellectual, professional, artist, teacher, city dweller, anyone ...
