De Phnom Penh a Ban Lung via Kratie

CAMBODIA | Wed, 30 Dec 2015 | By irene_escude | Views [474]

El vol cap a Pekín va sortir segons el previst i al primer avió només m'hi vaig deixar una ampolla d'aigua. Vaig trepitjar Phnom Penh al cap de 4 vols i moltes hores , però l'arribada va ser triomfal, o així la ... Read more >

Cambodia - Phnom Penh

CAMBODIA | Thu, 9 Oct 2014 | By megandrob | Views [450]

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 >

El Khmer Rouge

CAMBODIA | Sat, 19 Jul 2014 | By miguel_rubi | Views [446]

La visita a Phnom Penh fue triste y desgastante, dado que la capital de Camboya es una de las cicatrices más grandes que quedaron del Khmer Rouge. Hoy en día, las prisiones y campos de exterminio se explotan como sitios turísticos, ... Read more >

Week 2 - Phnom Penh

CAMBODIA | Fri, 31 Jan 2014 | By escape | Views [554]

Being a volunteer in international development, I had expected life to be a little hard. Cambodia after all is a “third world” country. I'm sure it is for many of the locals here, including the 1/3 who live below the poverty line, however, ... Read more >

New Adventure Cambodia~

CAMBODIA | Mon, 20 Jan 2014 | By escape | Views [614]

Ok, I've said goodbye to my dearest friends who have essentially been (and are) my family these past years. I turn off my mobile and as the red icon fades to black, it bodes me farewell and good luck at the end of this chapter of Sydney life; we are ... Read more >

Fast Boat to Phnom Penh

CAMBODIA | Fri, 6 Dec 2013 | By butterfly-freed | Views [836]

It's another early morning start as, after much deliberation, I have decided to take the speed boat to Phnom Penh (pronounced Pnom Pen). It was going to be an early start regardless as yesterday a wedding ceremony got underway two doors down. A marquee ... Read more >

Abbreviated Cambodia

CAMBODIA | Sat, 1 Jun 2013 | By gsewake | Views [793]

In sum, friendly people, tasty food (although not that spicy), humbling history and amazing sites. We arrived in Phnom Penh, Cambodia via an international bus from Don Khon, Lao. About 5km outside of Kratie, Cambodia the bus got delayed---apparently ... Read more >

Cambodia: on my own, but not alone

CAMBODIA | Mon, 11 Feb 2013 | By kirsty_nz | Views [4172]

You are never too old for firsts. I am relatively well travelled, but until now I have never really travelled on my own. It was something that I needed to know that I could do. Sitting at the riverfront in Phnom Penh on my last night in Cambodia I had ... Read more >

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

CAMBODIA | Wed, 27 Jun 2012 | By sglass | Views [2735] | Comments [3]

Phnom Penh is a welcome contrast from Ho Chi Minh City. The pace is much slower, the people are a little friendlier, and surprisingly, everyone is much more used to foreigners. English is spoken everywhere here and unbeknownst to us the other "official"... Read more >

Crossing to Cambodia

VIETNAM | Tue, 26 Jun 2012 | By sglass | Views [748]

After Vung Tao we had to decide whether to go north along the coast of Vietnam, stopping along all the beach villages as we go or to head back west to Ho Chi Minh City and from there on to Cambodia. Our debate about which to choose went a little bit ... Read more >

There are times when I feel am an opportunist coz am trying to capture some horrid truths and gain sympathy for my work and in the process become popular...taking photographs around the killing fields was one such time. I feel guilty putting ... Read more >

Cambodia's Dark Past

CAMBODIA | Thu, 2 Jun 2011 | By mpreece7 | Views [938]

A school is a place where people can better their lives through education. School can lead to a good job with a good house and a well looked after family. So how does a place of learning turn into one of horror and torture? S-21 in Phnom Penh ... Read more >

24½ Days of Trying to Get My Shit Together

CAMBODIA | Wed, 1 Dec 2010 | By karsoe | Views [733]

PHNOM PENH, CAMBODIA – What was meant to be “30 days of literary abandon” turned out to not really work out so well. My final wordcount was about half of what it should’ve been. I won’t go into the specific reasons why, what with this not being ... Read more >

Phnom Penh - passing through again

CAMBODIA | Tue, 29 Sep 2009 | By alistair | Views [784]

It seems that everything passes through Phnom Penh, so I was back in the city for a few days before heading further north. The drive up from Sihinoukville was interesting. I was on a much cheaper bus than the one I went down on and as ... Read more >

Phnom Penh - just passing through

CAMBODIA | Sun, 20 Sep 2009 | By alistair | Views [862]

When I flew in to Phnom Penh I was amazed at the scale of the monsoon flooding. There was water as far as you could see. The river banks and settlements were raised high enough to see them but there was water everywhere. I was worried that we were ... Read more >
