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.

... Cambodians - Cambodians killing Cambodians. For me the most upsetting sight we saw was the 'Killing Tree' which is where guards would hold babies by their legs and throw their heads against the tree before throwing them into the pit which lay beside the tree.

After such an amazing month in Vietnam we were really sad to leave, especially as we had heard a few negative reviews and stories from other backpackers, one of which was something called a 'Milk Scam'. This is when mothers with a baby ask you to buy them some milk from the local supermarket or 7/11, then when you go into the shop they insist they can only have the most expensive powder at over £20. Most people then feel so guilty about saying no that they just buy it, only for ...
... in the opposite side. It wasn't too bad but hot enough that we had to keep the curtains drawn. The passengers from the row behind us and all the way to the back of the bus were well behaved, if you take into consideration they were 50kg sacks of something apparently quite important to someone. There were only 9 human passengers including us. The rest of the bus was loaded down with merchandise. The bus ride was non-eventful and we arrived at the border in about an hour. Here ...
... people survived out of seventeen thousand that arrived. There were also horrific pictures of people's injuries after interrogation and skulls from the nearby Killing Fields (where most of the people imprisoned ended up being killed and put into mass graves). The most poignant part was reading the stories of the survivors as they had narrated them. It is impossible to imagine what the whole country went through. The rest of the world was oblivious to what was going ...
