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.

But, like is always the way we arrive in a bus station and tuk tuk drivers are crowding around us fighting over ...
... it was on to a club, where it played music I'm not a huge fan of (too old :-/ ) so I left at 0300. Not bad considering I was ready for bed at 2000!
Sunday I went round the Royal Palace, which was lovely but SO HOT!!! And then in the afternoon I met Rachel who took me to a dance performance of traditional Khmer Dancing based on 'The Magic Flute' This was really good, totally different to anything I've seen before, but it was awfully ...
... them a skill and employing them in restaurants, massage parlours and craft stores. While visiting this time, we got to go to some of my favourites, introduced to me by the lovely Miranda. Friends International have a few restaurants around the city and they are excellent. We went to Romdeng where they employ former street youths to work and also make the artwork that adorns the restaurant, and enjoyed their really delicious local food, including the ...
Yesterday had a leisurely drive to Phnom Penh with a stop at markets where tarantulas are sold. Most of them were cooked apart from one lady carrying a bucketful of live ones. Glen was taking a photo of the live ones when he surprisingly got two hits on his backside by an unknown female, his thrill for the day. Our guide purchased a few live ones and we made sure they remained contained in ...
