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.

How one small experience has changed my life. My decision to volunteer overseas came after one awakening day in Canberra. Instead of subjecting myself to the same old routine and cycle, I took time to reassess and examine my emotional state in order to find out whether I was truly happy. Turns out, while I had the most amazing group of people around me, the job I was doing and the impact it was creating on myself and others were not ...
Our time in Phnom Penh started out with a bang, literally. After arriving at the airport we agreed with a tuk-tuk driver to take us to our hotel, but upon getting to his tuk-tuk he immediately tried selling us other tourist services, as tuk-tuk drivers in SE Asia often do. His opening bid: "You go shoot guns?" It worked, and 15 minutes later we were shooting an AK-47 at a couple of coconuts. As far as I know the shooting ranges in Siem Reap and Phnom ...
... and are gathered every few months by workers here. There's also a Buddhist memorial housing thousands upon thousands of sculls, many with holes in from horrific head injuries caused. But the worst part, for me, worse than seeing the sculls is imagining what happened under the 'killing tree'. No words can describe the evil that trees bared upon its bark, for this tree was used to execute children and babies. I couldn't help but get a stone in my throat when I heard ...
