... and there was so much "stuff" in there and it was sooooo hot and stuffy!! I spent the best 50c ever on a fan which was not removed from my hand for the rest of the trip!! We walked around the market for a while and bought some souvenirs and 2 pineapples to eat yummy!!! Right as were were about done it started chucking it down with rain, but it didn't seem to stop anything...everyone got out their rain coats and out tuk tuk man put up the tuk tuks rain ...
... details, it is too disturbing.
One final thought...all of this county's pain literally stems from the undifferentiating mistrust of one man -- Pol Pot condemned to death anyone who might even possibly appose his ideas... The well educated, the multilingual, and most rediculously those who wore glasses. Even going as far as to kill their family members, so as to leave no one who could later seek revenge. This led to a quarter of the population simply being erased. Insanity!

Battambang is also well known for an acrobatic circus. Created shortly after the post Khmer Rogue Vietnam occupation. Well known choreographers from around the world come to train young adults to perform. A few selected dancers have received scholarships to continue the training with circ de soleli in Canada. It was very impressive. Local children are ...

There were some other differences that we noticed on the journey that took about 7 hours in total to Phnom Penh. The countryside in Vietnam was used mainly to grow crops and it was common to see large tombs (family graves) smack in the middle of them as people bury the dead on their land. In the stretch of Cambodia that we drove through, there was far ...

Unfortunately the temples were damaged during both the Vietnam war and Khmer Rouge. Many statues inside were stolen by locals during this time and only the outer structures remain. Locals hope that in the future the ruins will be restored by Unesco. After ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
My recent stay at Colonial Mansions was to say the least extremely disappointing. I have in the past been a long stay guest and for the most part very happy. Having stayed there I do know the layout of the property and surrounding environment. There is major construction in the immediate vicinity; hence I requested a room away from the construction area!
This was confirmed in writing along with the rate.
Upon my arrival there was no record of my booking, the rate or my request!
After a lengthy wait at reception I was escorted to quite possibly the noisiest room in the property. Being the middle of the day I was not overly concerned, but what a big mistake this was!
To my surprise the adjacent construction was a 24-hour operation and an unbelievably noisy one at that. Apart from the relentless noise the windows did not close properly and allowed the noise to penetrate very easily.
This was possibly the worst nights sleep (or lack of it) I have ever had.
I have brought this to the managements attention and have ignored me completely! Their silence is as deafening as the nearby construction noise and is completely unacceptable.
This construction will be ongoing for several years, in my opinion this property should be closed while the construction is ongoing, it really is unbearable. I will never stay there again.
