Ook direct maar het reisverhaal van mijn eerste tijd in Cambodja!
Na de 4000 islands stond Phnom Penh op de planning. Bij de grens werden we direct geconfronteerd met het corrupte Cambodja die nog steeds in de top 150 staat van de meest corrupte landen ter wereld. Hoewel bij ons alles nog redelijk soepel ging betaal je wel rond de 5 a 10 …
We spent our last day in Siem reap exploring further out temples in Angkor, but there is only so much more I can write about these incredible temples. It was another hot but excellent day out with our friendly tuktuk driver Mr Dorn.

Nothing fancy in any sense of the word, but a place to stay within easy walking distance of what you want in town. Super cheap rooms so you can spend your money on sightseeing.
