So really I only had one day here but it was filled with a pretty ugly story about the Pol Pot regime.
We spent the morning at the killing fields and at SS21. It was a sobering experience about a part of recent history that is often forgotten.
After a lunch of lobster and a glass of wine the group headed off to the grand temple. I …
Started the day with a trip to the Central Market. Morning is a good time to go before the food gets really ripe. Then off to the Royal Palace which had a large number of ceremonial buildings and stupas.

The hotel is functional and sits near the central markets. The pool area on top of the hotel is well situated but you have to buy drinks at that bar.
