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.

They have just a few Khmer ("people" in Cambodian) dishes but none seem very nice. 16th June - There is no room for us in our guesthouse tonight but we only have to move over the road to Velkommen Backpackers and get a similar room for the same price of $16. Similarly to yesterday we spend our time around the hostel to save some money after the expensive Vietnamese visa. We have almost gone made by the time it gets to 6pm and we can go and get our visa. We ...
... off on a tangent again, in a typical day around mid morning depending on what time our patients are, we might have an iced coffee. These are amazing, a definite favourite of mine and something I'm going to try to recreate in the UK. For lunch I hop on the back of Davit's moto and we go to a local restaurant. Generally rice and few different dishes, accompanied by iced tea. Afternoons are then the same as the mornings, either more patients, or physio and English education.
... middle-class or disliked), they were punished, often with death. In less than four years, 1.7 million people (or approximately one in four Cambodians) had died.
A lot of the prison had been left untouched and you could look inside the tiny cells and see the interrogation instruments. There were still blood stains on the floor. In a few rooms, were photographs of hundreds of people that had entered Toul Sleng (they photographed everyone as they arrived). Only up ...
