Be aware there is some disturbing content and pictures I had a great conversation with the taxi driver that picked me up from the airport and took me to my hotel yesterday. His name is Visal and he is 35, single and looking for the same things in life that the rest of us are. To find love, have a family, make a great earning, travel, wish the environment was better, and want a better life overall. We chatted about a lot of things on that short cab ride, so I thought I would ...

Before leaving for the hostel we were taken to a small wooden shack in the park where Ant offered to buy us an iced coffee. I politely declined as I hated coffee but after trying Roses, I was hooked. It had an almost chocolate taste and with condensed milk was nice and sweet. My taste buds are changing!
That night the girls were both happy to eat at the hostel but I was not keen on the vegetarian options and wanted to ...

Beautiful buildings, lovely roofs with these pointy endings, about which I learned that they are the body of the Naga god snake, while the roof tiles are the snake's scales. One of the buildings has in front of it a large pole, the scratching pole for the elephants ;-)

... on, but we still don't trust those smelly tuk tuk drivers!! The palace was nice, we mainly got to see the grounds, but the gardens were mainly full of statues. After the palace, the pagoda was across the road so went across to see it. It was a cool looking pagoda but had no information with it so didnt tell us what it was for.

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.
