Phnom Penh Cambodia

Gary lived in Cambodia for a year back in the early nineties. So many many years later in 2005 it was time to go back. That was my first visit.

Since then we have been to Cambodia many many times, it is one of our favorite destinations!

I have lots more info on our trips to Cambodia on my website below;

Our very first visit together to Phnom Penh was very exciting as we were met by our friends at the airport and an old mate of my husbands who he hadn’t seen since he lived in Cambodia in 1992/93, this lovely Cambodian guy was Gary’s interpreter and they hadn’t seen one another for 12 years so there were a lot of tears etc.

I just love the drive through the streets of Phnom Penh, so many push bikes, motor bikes and cyclos, there is traffic everywhere, there seems to be no road rules but more important no road rage.

It’s a city of young people. Buildings that were once modern and impressive now look old and tired. Then next to them are beautiful renovated grand hotels. It truly is an amazing city.

Anyway enjoy my Travelogue and tips pages, please keep checking back as it’s a work in progress.

There is also a lot more info and photos on Cambodia on my website below.

    Sounds like a great price for a Tuk Tuk. You are obviously a seasoned negotiator.
