Cambodia - Phnom Penh

CAMBODIA | Thu, 9 Oct 2014 | By megandrob | Views [360]

Our plane trip to Vietnam was awesome. We got emergency exit seats, so we had soooo much leg room. It made me wish it was a longer flight. After the horrible one we had from Korea to Vietnam, it was pure luxury! We arrived in Phnom Penh just after 1pm, ... Read more >

Cambodia: Second Time Around

CAMBODIA | Tue, 14 Feb 2012 | By lisaf | Views [1288]

CAMBODIA | Wed, 12 Aug 2009 | By matsmith | Views [1108]

Welcome to Cambodia, Kingdom of Wonder. That was the sign we saw on arrival to Cambodia. It didn't seem much different to Vietnam at first, just less motorbikes and more cars. Coming in to Phnom Penh though it was obvious that this was a very different ... Read more >

Contemplation in Cambodia

CAMBODIA | Sun, 9 Aug 2009 | By karsoe | Views [285]

PHNOM PENH, CAMBODIA - How can I write any more on the horrors of Tuol Sleng and Cheoung Ek? I've done so already, as have countless others. And they've done a far better job than me. I visited those placed for a second time recently. Their impact was ... Read more >
