We arrived at the Pavilion around 5 pm and had a very happy reunion. Our hotel was very nice, and had a tropical pool set in the entry. That night we went out for Cambodia food, and tried a classic dish called "fish amok." It is a souffle like steamed curry of fish, lemongrass and coconut cream. We also tried Cambodian BBQ, and got a large conical grill at our table to cook our own meat. It was all delicious.
The next day we went to the Royal Palace and the silver Pagoda. Then, our day took a sad turn with a visit to Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum
If you're interested in more information about these two sites:
That evening we stopped by the Russian market, which has every sort of souvenior you could ever want, and went out for Cambodian again.
